Launch Of Delvin Venture Scouts (Ages 15-18)

I am delighted to report the setting up of Venture Scouts in Delvin. This group is for those aged between fifteen and eighteen years.

The group is headed by Laura O’Neill and she has already set the Venture’s with their first challenge. The group started training last week for the challenge of climbing Ireland’s highest mountain. The group will set out on the 7th of October with Venture Scouts from all over Westmeath to climb Carrauntoohil – a height of 1039 meters. The group have a tough month ahead of them as they intend to climb a number of mountains in different areas of Ireland in preparation for the climb.
