Memorial plaques naming scouts and scout leaders who contributed to the scouting history of the town were unveiled in New Ross recently.

Family members and friends of deceased leaders and scouts joined together with the New Ross Sea Scout troop for the memorial service at the scout hall in New Ross.

Memories were shared by Paddy Delaney, Brian MacMahon, Alex Kelly and Kitty Warren at the emotional ceremony.

The memorial plaques were unveiled by Paddy Delaney who was involved with the scouts over many years.

A collage of memorabilia donated by the family of the late Kieran Foley, who was the first sea scout outside of Dublin to earn a Chief Scouts award, was displayed.
