Tonight was a very special night for 9 of our scouts who received their CSA which they earned while in cubs last year.
The night was made extra special for the boys as we had our Chief Scout Christy McCann in attendance to present the boys with their award.It was great that the Chief Scout took time to come along and made it such a great occasion.We also had our County Commissioner Theresa Kiely TJ O Donnell and county cub commissioner in attendance too.
Also present on the night was our own group Leader Des Mckeown and leaders form other sections in the group as well as committee members.The boys had family members in the hall as well.It was great to see so many in the hall
Before the CSA was presented we presented the boys who took party in the County Cub Monopoly run with their certs for the event
And so to the presentation of the CSA to the boys.Our group Leader,County Commissioner and Chief Scout all made speeches and congratulated the boys.The boys Facilitator Claire gave a run down on what the boys had done to receive this award.And finally our Chief Scout presented each of the boys with their CSA Certificate and badge.
The night finished with a little celebration party for all.
At this stage I must take time to congratulate the 9 boys Tom,Dylan,Eoghan,Jack,Rory,Jack,Michael,Jake and James on receiving this award.We the leaders are so proud of you and the effort put into getting this award was exceptional and you are most deserving of this award. We are so glad that the Chief Scout was able to present the awards to you.We are sorry to see you leaving us but we have had some great times an memories with you.Thanks to your parents who were always their to help us out.We hope that you now go on to enjoy your time in scouts and hopefully you will come along to some of the cub events and help us out in the future.

Our cubs had a great Indoor weekend camp at Sixmilebrige Scout hall
We arrived on Friday April 10th and as it was late when we got there we gave the boys the evening free to themselves.As is always we had a late first night.
None of us could have expected the sight that we awoke to Saturday Morning.Snow in April well thats what we had but it didn’t last long and at 11am we departed for 12O Clock Hills.This is an 8km hike with all kinds of challenges in it Forest paths,roads,hiking thru the forest on really muddy terrain, stepping stone and more.All 21 cubs got to the top and what a view from the summit.It took us 4.5 hrs to do the hike
Back to Sixmilebridge for dinner and some fun and games followed by a movie and late night feast.
The hike certainly took its toll on the cubs as by 12:00 all were sound a sleep
The boys were picked up after Breakfast Sunday morning.
Well done to all the boys and a big thank you to the 4 leaders who gave the boys such a great time
