Cubs chal­lenge

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.
