3rd Westmeath Delvin Scouts

The 3rd Westmeath Delvin Scouts became a reality on the 14th April 2010 following ten months of hard work by group leaders.

Currently, the group involves 75 young people between the ages of 6 & 16 and is overseen by 17 committed leaders (all over 18).

In scouting we live by our Scout Law. We are open to all and everyone is treated the same. There is something for everyone in the Scouts, be it tying knots, doing track and trail, singing around the camp fire and more.

Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts are aged between 6 and 9
So far our Beaver Scouts have gone hiking, visited Dublin Zoo for National Wildlife Awareness day, participated in a local fun day and visited the Army Barracks in Mullingar where they tackled the climbing wall without fear. They were also visited by a ban garda from Delvin to do the Stay Safe programme.

Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are aged between 9 and 11
In addition to the events enjoyed by the Beaver Scouts, our Cub Scouts have also earned some badges for pet care projects, home help and other activities. Sargent Roger Nickleson also offered a course in road safety.


Scouts are aged between 11 and 16
Our Scouts work hard and play hard. They have been kayaking in Portlick which is where our Scout county camp site in located, as well as bowling in Mullingar and bivi making in mullaghmeen forest.

Venture Scouts

This group is for those aged between fifteen and eighteen years.

Great show. Very enjoyable. Oscars presentation night must be due. 😎

Wish good luck to all ! 😉
Rapscallion Drama Group are delighted to announce that noted historian and academic Catriona Crowe has approached us to film in Delvin during our performances of “The Mean Streets of Garradrimna” on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st September, at St Patrick’s Hall.

Catriona is filming a television documentary on Ireland in 1918 and thinks our celebration of the 100 years anniversary of the publication of “The Valley of The Squinting Windows” is a perfect opportunity to gather material for her programme.

The crew will film the performances with added reaction pieces from audience members, so hope to see you all scrubbed up and in your “Sunday best”!
