Welcome to the website of the 23rd Limerick Scouts- Caherdavin. We’re a very activie group made up of the Chriost Rí Beaver Colony, Clonmacken Cub Pack, Caherdavin Scout Troop, Caherdavin Venture Scout Unit and Caherdavin Rover Scout Crew. We are members of Scouting Ireland, based in Limerick Scout County.
We’re based in the Caherdavin Area in Limerick City. The Group was founded in 1973 (just 3 years after the Parish of Christ the King was founded). Originally our meetings were held in the School’s prefabs but this fell into disrepair so in 1993 we opened our own purpose built Scout Hall. At one stage we had one of the largest Scout Unit in the entire association with two Beaver Colony’s, three Cub Packs, two Scout Troop and a Venturer Group.

Scouting Ireland is a voluntary, uniformed, non-formal educational movement for young people. The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, character, emotional, social, and spiritual development of young people so that they may achieve their full potential and, as responsible citizens, to improve society. We do this through the Scout Method.
We currently have around 80 youth members and 17 scouters across 5 sections:
