Well done to all the Cubs and Scouters who completed the hike on Abbey Hill, Co Clare on Sunday 1st March 2015. The weather forecast was for mixed showers and wind with possible thunder and lighting in the late afternoon.
The day started fine with some nice sunshine and mixed clouds.
As the day progressed and we worked our way up the hill the weather changed to a gentle shower of rain. Luckily all the Cubs were prepared.
The rain though very quickly turned to Snow!!
As we were very close to the top, we pressed on and rested at the top where there was some shelter behind a small outcrop.
After some lunch there was time for a snow ball fight which, for some reason involved several Scouters getting direct hits with snowballs without any return.
One Cub in particular proved to be a dab hand at scoring direct hits.
Before we left we made a new Scouting friend and invested him into the Athenry Cubs.
As we descended the weather cleared, providing some spectacular views of Counties Clare and Galway.
All back safe and sound.
See all the photographs.
