Well done to our Kilmacanogue Cubs that set off recently on their annual Three Hills Challenge. These climbs took place to the big Sugarloaf, Little Sugarloaf and Bray Head all in the one day. This year they were joined by some students studying in the nearby Woodlands Academy so it was also a cultural and community experience.
Some of our younger cubs joined the group on the Big Sugarloaf and the newest recruits joined them for the Bray Head stage. They set out at 9.45 a.m. and finished their day at 4 p.m. Well done to everyone who walked on the day and thank you to our support team providing refreshments along the way, It was a tiring but a very enjoyable day.
