I’m sorry to have to pass on the very sad news of the passing of Leopold Batt.
Leopold was one of the founders of 164th Dublin Brackenstown Scouts and the group’s first Unit Leader. He was a cornerstone of the group in the early years and key to it developing into the thriving group we have today.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Leopold’s family at this very sad time. Leopold has now gone home. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
