What a week

Phew !  what a week ....

 First, on Wed 23rd May we took part in the County Macaoimh Sports Evening.

A fine selection of the 74ths greatest athletes  ran, hopped, sprinted, pulled ropes and carried potatoes in spoons against tough opposition. There were some great individual performances from Clodagh Molloy and Brian Corkery who took home medals.

 The results of the Annual Macaoimh Challenge were also announced on the evening, with the 74th taking 4th overall position this year. This was a great improvement on last years competition where we came 7th, and great credit is due to all our Macaoimh for the work put in at the various County events and activities since last September.

More importantly, we won “Best Spirit” award, which is a great indication of the unity, teamwork and true scouting spirit apparent in our Macaoimh section. Well done to all our youth members and leaders. We are really proud of you.

 A few days later, on Saturday, in blazing sunshine at Inniscarra, 26 of our Macaoimh had a blast on the lake. Under the watchfull eyes of Colin Heas and Bernard Lyons of the newly formed County Water Activities Team, we paddled in kayaks, sailed dingies, made rafts ( and floated them !) and motored around the lake on a  sailboard. Everyone got wet but the fun we all had was incredible.
