Below are a few photos of Boyle Scouts taking part in their Annual Tus Maith Fundraising Hike, held on Sunday 12th February on Sliabh an Iarainn, Ballinamore.
Over 400 people attended the Lough Keel Scout County event on the day with Scouts attending from Boyle, Carrick on Shannon, Mohill, Ballinamore, Longford, Lanesboro and Ballyleague.

Boyle Scouts had a great turnout of Members, Leaders and Parents with over 150 travelling and taking part in the hike in ideal weather conditions. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all.

Special thanks to all the Leaders and Parents for helping us out on the day and a special word of thanks to the Order of Malta for providing Medical Cover and also to the Ballinamore Scout Group for hosting the event and providing refreshments and barbeque for everyone.
