Manannán will be camping in Powerscourt Demesne over Easter weekend, from Friday 19 until Monday 22 April.
Scouts must come down to the Den on the Friday in full uniform, with hiking boots instead of black shoes.
We will be meeting in the Den at 1000hrs on Friday 19 April, with lifts leaving for Powerscourt between 1030hrs and 1100hrs once personal gear has been checked and group equipment loaded. We expect to be leaving Powerscourt on Monday 22 April at 1100hrs, and finished putting equipment away in the Den at 1230hrs. Watch Leaders will arrange lifts to and from Powerscourt for their watches.
