ARDFINNAN BEAVERS, CUBS & SCOUTS

Ardfinnan Beavers recently hosted the County Table Quiz. Ardfinnan Beaver team won on the day with Clonmel coming second and Carrick third. Congratulations to David Butler, Eoin Keane, Ciaran Condon, Leah Hally and Robyn Burke. Thanks to everyone who helped out.

We would like to wish the Cubs that moved up to Scouts the best of luck and hope they enjoy Scouts: Seán Óg Coughlan, Cian O’Leary and Martin Condon. Two teams from Ardfinnan took part in the recent County Swimming Gala. Well done to Shane Macnamara, Ellen Meagher, Eoin Ryan, Paul Carberry, Sinead Cunningham, Laura Burke, Molly Magner, Chloe Bray and Ben Doyle. Although we didn’t come home with a medal, all the Cubs had a great day.
