The route will leave Whitehall and travel east down Collins Ave towards Clontarf.  It navigates past the sites of 4 WM and loops back onto Collins Ave.  It heads north along the old airport rd, heading for St Margerets. From there we head for Ballyboughal via Drishogue. The road surface isnt great on this stretch.  From Ballyboughal the route heads east to Lusk and north from there along the coast road to Skerries visting the site of the GWM at ST PATRICKS CHURCH. First control is in Skerries(about 52k). Continuing north along the coast rd from Skerries to Balbriggan we pass the next GWR at ST GEORGES in Balbriggan. From Balbriggan again the route heads north to Julianstown, and then on to the 2nd control in Drogheda (about  82k) and Castlebellingham.   Then it’s south to Collon and onto the last control at SLANE.  From Slane its down the hill (dangerous descent) heading  over to Beauparc.  From Beauparc the route heads south back to Whitehall via Cusackstown, Ratoath, Kilbride, Finglas (passing the last site at St Canices Church, Finglas) and finally back to the Finish.

      1. I got an email from Ronnie last night (21/01) confirming my entry and new start location of Whitehall Church – so yes.
        GPS is to follow – so I guess watch this space!
