Main events conducted were pioneering, tent pitching, orienteering (twice) and night hikes on Friday and Saturday. With a brief snowfall on Saturday evening the inevitable snowball fight ensued during the night hike. We attended Mass on Sunday morning where we were warmly welcomed by locals and the Parish Priest.

We returned to Fethard at approximately 6.30pm on Sunday evening. We say a huge ‘thank you’ to Owen Walsh for the loan of one of his buses. This was a magnanimous gesture from Owen and a huge saving on the overall costs of the weekend.
