The glider was carrying out a closed-circuit cross-country flight from Birr Airfield, Co. Offaly (EIBR). Due to deterioration in the weather conditions, the Pilot decided to make an unscheduled out-landing in a field near Durrow, Co. Laois. The glider landed on a down-slope, and the Pilot ground looped to the right to avoid impacting the field boundary fence and hedge. The fuselage sustained significant damage during the ground loop manoeuvre.
