There are limited spaces in the cub section aged 9-11, scouts section 11-15 and the new venture section aged 15-18 yrs that link in with the county venture team.

We are delighted to welcome two new leaders to the group but with the increased youth membership we are urgently seeking more young people over the age of 18 who would like to do some voluntary work even on a part time basis.

Registration fees have been reduced to €45 which should be paid over the coming weeks and the weekly subscription is €2. We are due to go on the new scout programme over the coming months so its an exciting time for scouting.For further information please contact Laura on 087 9417974 or Breda at 087 6858480.
