|The 17th Beaver
Colony re-opened on the 20th February, 1996. On the first night 21 children turned up,
showing the need for a new colony. Since then we have never looked back.
We have three leaders, Breda Murphy, Breda
Collins & Martina Gleeson and we have since been joined by Tina McGrath.
We are a very active colony taking part in all regional activities and running many
successful activities ourselves from trips to the seaside, the woods, Fota Island in Cork
and finding out the history of our city.
||At present we have 20 beavers, 15 boys and 5 girls. We meet
every Thursday evening at 5.45 pm in the Scout Hall. Over the past number of years we have
taken part in many regional activities. In 1985 we won the Regional Beavers Trophy.
In 1996 we took part in the National Outdoor Award in which we received a badge to wear on
our uniform. Our leaders are Ann Sinnott, Miriam White, Tony Madigan and Carol Gleeson. We
also take part in many outdoor activities that we organise ourselves on a monthly basis.
