In 2012, after an absence of 20 years in the town, Kiltimagh Scouts was reformed. Our first meeting was in September 2012. Initially we started with 18 Beavers and 18 Cubs but since then we have gone from strength to strength to the point where we now have 80+ children across Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and 30 Leaders. The success of the troop has wildly exceeded our expectations and this could not have happened without the support of families, friends and the Kiltimagh community at large. Hiking, tidy-towns, campfires, bushcraft and lots of other new skills are all part of what we’re about. Not to mention our annual camps and ‘sleepover’ visits to other scout dens in Mayo. And with a very long waiting list we hope to be providing those skills and opportunities long into the future.
