Weekend Plans – Ireland’s Eye and Ready Steady Cook

Hi all,

A reminder about this weekends activities. We will be setting sail to Ireland’s Eye tomorrow and competing in the annual Ready Steady Cook competition on Sunday. Full details are below.

Ireland’s Eye – Saturday 8th 10.15am

We will be meeting at the Den at 10.15am tomorrow morning and heading out to Howth. From there we will jump on a ferry and sail across to Ireland’s Eye. We will explore the island, now a bird sanctuary, which has a rugged coast with a free standing rock formation known as ‘The Stack’. Large numbers of guillemots, terns, gannets, razorbills, cormorants and puffins nest around the shore.We plan to be back at the Den at approx. 4pm

You will need:

  • €5
  • Neckerchief
  • Packed Lunch
  • Sun Cream
  • Hiking boots

Ready Steady Cook – Sunday 9th at 10.00am – 1.30pm

Each patrol will be challenged to prepare a 3 course meal, enough for 2 people on a budget of €15. The meals will be cooked on fires.

Patrols always produce a high standard of yummy grub every year at the Ready Steady Cook competition. If the presentation of menus, and questioning/”grilling” by other scouts at yesterday’s meeting is anything to go by….this year may be the best yet!
