Kells Scouts
The Kells Scout Group has had a busy couple of weeks.
Venture Scout Aislinn Roberts took part in the Mountain Havoc event in the Scottish Highlands, where she climbed 4 peaks in 2 days, including snow capped Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the British Isles.
Venture Scout Conor Denny took part in the week long PEAK challenge in the McGillicuddy's Reeks, where he learned new mountain navigation skills and spent the week hiking and camping in the Reeks.
Well done to Aislinn and Conor on completing these challenges.
The group also took part in the recent Easter parade in Dunnamaggin, an event at which the group is very proud to be represented each Easter.
The group also took the opportunity to tour the Irish Naval base at Haulbowline recently. All age groups got to see how sailors are trained and had a close up look at the navy's ships, including the newly commissioned LE George Bernard Shaw. All scouts thoroughly enjoyed the day, and would like to say a special thanks to LS Ronan Coveney, who looked after us for the day.

Registration for the next Scouting year will take place in Kells Scout Den on Wednesday May 15th at 7pm. All current members will need to register and new members aged 6 to 18 years are welcome.
