The Beaver scout and Cub Scout sections are currently full and a waiting list is in operation for both these sections. If you wish to join the waiting list, your application must be made online. Choose ‘Join from the menu on the home page. Applicants are recorded based on the date of submission and places are offered on a first come first served basis to eligible applicants.
Please note the applicants must be six years of year before joining the Beaver section. Applicants under six will remain on the waiting list until they are six. The progression age between the other section has more flexibility, but generally members progressing in September must have reached the minimum age for the section by 31st December.
The cub county challenge day, scheduled for this Sunday 19th October has been postponed due to the fact that a yellow weather alert is in force until Sunday evening from Met Eireann. Details of the rescheduled date are to be advised.

As part of our air activities badge, the cub scouts visited Cork Airport on 28th January. We were met by the Airport Fire & Security service and given a presentation on what they do and how the airport works. We saw different planes landing and taking off and identified the parts of a plane. We were given a tour of the fire station and all the equipment. It was a great tour all cubs were presented with a certificate and their Stage1 Air activities badge, having completed all the requirements
