The last year was a busy one for the troup. They had some of the Cashel Community School students who were taking part in the An Gaisce Awards join them as part of the community element of the Bronze award.

At Halloween leaders took the Beavers to library, the staff treated them to a story and the children were in fancy dress. In December, they had their investiture night at which a Rover and three new leaders invested as well as Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who had joined or who have moved up a grade. The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts continued with their SPICES programme and meanwhile, the leaders attended training camps which were held in Cashel, Clonmel and Dundrum. This enabled the leaders to meet and discuss various aspects of scouting with other troop leaders and unit leaders.

They had a Christmas party and show, all the children participated and the Cubs were excellent in their play. The scout troop is certainly very talented and the parents were so proud of their little stars!

The Beavers had a visit from Garda Diarmuid Moriarty who spoke to them about safety and how to look after themselves, know their phone numbers and addresses and discussed the various parts of his uniform.

The Scouts and Ventures went hiking around Urlingford. On St. Patricks day we took part in the parade and had a float demonstrating the wood craft skills that the Scouts and Venture Scouts had been working on.

On behalf of the scouts we would to thank the parents, the children themselves and anybody else who helped us out during the year your help and support means a lot to us.
