Step up for County Cork
- Is County Cork your home county?
- Are you an experienced and well-equipped hillwalker / mountaineer?
- Can you self-navigate confidently through rugged and exposed terrain in any weather using a hardcopy paper map and compass?
- Would you like to represent County Cork in an all-Ireland sport?
If you answered yes to all four of the above questions, we invite you to #StepUpForCountyCork in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Counties Championship. For a chance to become a member of your county's Sport Hillwalking team, you must log visits to High Point locations during the competition season using the Peakhunter smartphone app AND register them with us via our online Highpointeer Score Form no later than 30th September.
Find out when the current or upcoming championships are taking place by visiting our sports competition status page.
During October, the five highest point-scoring individuals representing County Cork will be identified as the county's official Sport Hillwalking team in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Counties Championship. Their scores added together will become the county's overall score for the year.
Hillwalkers representing Team County Cork will also be representing Team Munster.

Even if you are not participating in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Counties Championship, we invite you to encourage your county's Sport Hillwalking team on social media. All you need to do is post this page's URL on Facebook or Twitter (the image below containing your county's location map and hashtag will automatically appear in the post). And don't forget to include #StepUpForCountyCork in the post's text.
