Treasure Hunt Procedure and Rules Sept 10th

Entry is €10 per car, regardless of number of occupants. Each driver will be given a playing card.

The objectives are:

Have a fun and interesting day and if you get around to it ….

1 :   To find and physically bring back as many of the treasure items from the list provided.

2 :   Photograph various things on route on one phone. You MUST include the “face” of the playing card on every photograph, otherwise the photos on your phone, will not be counted.

3 :  Answer questions from clues provided


There is no timing for finding the “treasure” and answering the clues, so absolutely no need for any speeding.

Any team found to be speeding will be disqualified immediately.

Be respectful of the surroundings, people and businesses.

If the team cannot find the item of treasure, or item to photograph, move on to the next one, as most items are in no particular order.
