10 lads from the Cub Pack did themselves, the Cub Pack and the Group proud with the behaviour during the Guard of Honour the performed at the funeral of the late Mickey Long.The boys met the Funeral outside Mickeys house before walking beside the hearse to Caherdavin Church.At the church they helped to bring the wreaths into the church.Mickey would have been proud of them.
Well done to the following boys Brendan Burke,Cillian Hickey,Cian Guilfoyle,Senan Cavanagh,Gareth O Brien,Dean Carey,Dean McGinn,Aidan Keane,John Conway and Joey Hempenstall and to leaders Michael O Halloran and Ger Cavanagh
Mickey was a leader in the Caherdavin Group in the early days in the 70’s and 80’s.Mickey was a great leader and there was nothing he wouldn’t do to help out his cubs or scouts.Mickeys car could be seen carrying any number of young lads in it to and from scouting events.A more detailed piece about Mickeys Scouting years will appear here soon.
To his family we extend our sincere sympathy and you can be assured that Mickey will be forever remembered in the Caherdavin Group.
May he rest in peace
