Membership of 8ú Calafort is open to all regardless of race, creed, or fluency in the Irish language. However, because resources are limited (mainly human resources) and the growing popularity of scouting in general and 8ú Calafort in particular, the group is forced to operate a waiting list system for new entrants to most sections.

If you or someone you know is thinking of applying to join our Group please email our Membership Coordinator at membership @ or fill out and return the application form: Application Form (DOC) Application Form (PDF).

The Group maintains separate waiting lists for Cubs and Scouts. Demand is high and the number of places each year is low, particularly for Cubs. Unfortunately, each year there are applicants that do not receive an offer of a place.

At present there are long waiting lists for Cubs up to 2025 and beyond.
