Howth and Irelands Eye – Saturday 24th – Day Trip


Hi all,

We have to postpone our camping weekend to Lough Dan due to a lot Scouts being unavailable – something about a group called One Direction being in town.

Instead we are going to have a day trip on Saturday. Hopefully more Scouts will be able to make the trip (and got to the concert).

We will be meeting at the Den at 10am and heading out to Howth. If the boats are running we will sail out to a nearby island – Ireland’s Eye.

We will discuss full details at tomorrow’s meeting. See you all then.
