Boyle Scouts and Lough Keel Scout Campsite To Feature on RTE

The short documentary filmed by RTE back in early October will hit our screens on Saturday 12th November during the Winning Streak show.
The documentary was made of Boyle Scouts and Lough Keel Scout Campsite and the facilities and activities available to Scouts and visiting groups in the Boyle/Lough Key area.
Scouting Ireland nationally is an ongoing beneficiary of funding from the National Lottery.

The Scouts themselves and the Leaders and Parents whom put in a massive effort behind the scenes to have everything right for the cameras on the day, deserve great credit for their hard work.

Boyle Scouts would like to thank and fully appreciate the great support we received from Louise and Anna of Lough Key Activity Centre, Deirde Cunningham of North West Adventure, Denise and Staff of Zipit Forest Adventure, Pete and Oliver of Pete Walsh Boats and Adrien and Jimmy Neale of Lough Horse Riding Stables and Country Pursuits. Their support and willingness to get involved at short notice was just excellent. They pulled out all the stops for us and meant that on the day, we were able to showcase a huge amount of activities that are readily available around Boyle.

We would also like to sincerely thank Paddy Hennelly of the Communications Team in Scouting Ireland and Joe Doherty, Provincial Support Officer for the Western Province. Paddy travelled up to us from Galway to do the official interview with RTE and Joe joined us from Sligo to make sure everything ran smoothly.
