scouts-flagCongratulations to our scouts who recently took part in the Slievebloom County Challenge. This was a camp where our scouts took part in line camping, unaided for the whole weekend. Their skills were challenged and marked in a stiff competition. Our scouts did very well and the whole group should be proud of them! Well done also to Cobra Patrol on receiving bronze standard and Wolf Patrol on receiving silver standard. Next year we hope to qualify – onwards and upwards!

Thank you to our quartermaster Leanne Fogarty who put in a great effort in preparing our equipment and Kate Campion for helping with training the scouts. Congratulations to Roscrea Scout who came in first place, Tullamore Scouts for coming in second and Cloughjordan in third place. Our next event is the Scout Fest on the 24th June. Best of luck to any scouts taking part in the Junior Cert or Leaving Cert exams soon.

Congratulations to Lorna Campion who has recently taken a job for the next seven months working between Larch Hill campsite and Castlesaunderson. A great job to get, and while there she will also receive qualifications in Archery, Rock climbing to name a few. Well done.
