Niamh receives a Garda Youth Award

Niamh Bracken received a Garda Youth Award for her positivism in the face of personal challenges

It is great to have one of our youth members receive this Award. Niamh’s was awarded a Garda Youth Award last Friday for her scouting involvement and positive attitude over the last year despite undergoing a heart transplant! We are delighted to have Niamh as one of our ventures.

Venture Camp Day 2

Day two
Well, the blue team covered a mammoth 37km to make it to a wood in lisdoonvarna, a very weary team were met by their leaders on Tuesday night.

The green team covered a more modest(!) 27 km and made it to yet another friendly farm- this time in Corofin beside a beautiful lake, again last seen amusing themselves, this time with a newly acquired frisby.

Nearly there, just one nights camping left and then into showers – by force if necessary!

Duckie on Tour with the Ventures!


Heidelberg will never be the same after the Maynooth Three Musketeers hit it! They hiked along the River Neckar running into many “This’ll be Great!” adventures! Duckie guided them along the way and kept the spirits high. Thanks Duckie! You’re the Best!
