We proudly introduce to you the youngest member of the UIGSE: At the end of December, the Federal Council welcomed the „Guides and Scouts of Europe – Ireland“ as observer association to the UIGSE!

After having set the necessary administrative and legal base, the association’s activity started in January 2019 in Cork with small units of wolfcubs, wolvets and scouts. All three units met regularly during the year and were able to do summer camps, thanks to the excellent cooperation between Irish and French leaders.

In September, the new scout year started under the protection of St Finbarr, Cork’s founder and patron saint, in Gougane Barra (iconic birthplace of Cork, 6th century). The association counts now about 50 Wolfcubs (boys and girls), Scouts and Guides, 11 leaders, and 1 Religious Adviser. A strong team of “administrative” volunteers works in the background. The association continues to benefit from pedagogical support thanks to a regular follow-up by the International Union, as well as a long-term twinning with a French District.

Already, the perspective for setting up new groups elsewhere in Ireland is appearing.  In parallel, the red branch is being established with a clan and a fire.

The whole Union is sharing the joy of the new family member’s birth and is looking forward to common adventures in the future!

It is amazing how many ways there are to greet Jesus: from ancient Ukrainian carols to creative plays or classic Dickensian story. It is enough to make just an effort to become a miracle that will light many eyes! Continue reading
