We have secured another bag packing slot on Friday 31st May & Saturday 1st June in Dunnes Stores.

All support is greatly appreciated. Please fill out the form below if you are available and a member of our team will contact you
Our Scout Group is currently upgrading our Scout Hall to improve fire safety. The following letter is being sent to local businesses asking them for help with the costs of this project. If you know of a company that might be interested in supporting us, we would ask if you could pass this letter on to them.
Limerick Scout Group is a voluntary youth organisation providing outdoor
adventurous activities to young people in Caherdavin and the wider
Northside area. Our Group is based out of our Scout Hall on Blackthorn Drive.
The hall is also used by several other community groups.
The Group is
currently in the process of upgrading the Scout Hall in line with Scouting
Ireland’s new fire safety guidelines. While the Group appreciates the need for
the guidelines, they come with a considerable financial burden to a voluntary organisation
such as ours.
With this in
mind, we are reaching out to local businesses such as yours to support our Sponsor
a Fire Door campaign. All we are asking for is a small donation of €100
which will cover the cost of one door. In exchange, the Group will add a plaque
to the door with your company’s name on it as well as adding your logo to the
supporters’ page on our website.
If you would
like to sponsor one of the doors, please contact me on the number below. Your
support in this campaign will be greatly appreciated.
taking the time to read this letter. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
We will once again be taking part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Limerick on March 17th. This year in particular, we are asking for as many members of the Group as possible to join us on the day so we can show the community that we are still going strong.
Last night the Group held its AGM in the Scout Hall. Congratulations to our newly elected officers Bob Halvey, Barry Kennedy, Fiona Kiely and, in particular, Michael O’Halloran who will be taking on the role of Group Leader. Michael has been a Scouter in the Group for over 30 years and we look forward to seeing the Group develop under his leadership.
On behalf of the Group we would like to thank our four outgoing officers Des McKeown, Catherine Clancy, Tom Synott and Brigid Laffan for their years of service to Scouting. In particular we’d like to thank our outgoing Group Leader Des McKeown for all he has done for the Group over the past 27 years as Group Leader, Chairperson, Cub Leader and Scout Leader.
Thanks to all the Scouters and Youth Reps who attended and to County Commissioner Ursula Cosgrove and Provincial Support Officer Neil Collins for joining us. We look forward to working with you over the next few months and years as we continue the great tradition of Scouting in Caherdavin.
