It was a very proud day for the 13th Wexford Clonard Scout Group recently when four of their young scouts were presented with the Chief Scout Award.

The four scouts, who recently moved up from cubs to scouts, are Coast Moroney, Kaylin O'Leary, Robert Dunne and Jack O'Flynn.

The Chief Scout Award is the highest award that a Scout can achieve and the journey to the award took the best part of a year and a lot of hard work and dedication.

It was completed over various different camps, hikes and other scouting activities and included community and environmental projects as well as a 20km expedition.

The 13th Wexford Scout Group now has 12 members that hold the Chief Scout Award.

Presenting the awards was also the first official duty of the newly-elected County Commissioner, Cáoimhin O'Byrne.
