Photo of the week
Our photo of the week features this beautiful sunset taken from Pigeon Rock in the Mourne Mountains. It was taken by Daragh Hollman, a venture scout with the Howth Sea Scouts from Dublin. As part of a chief scout award for one of their troop, they undertook 3 days and 2 nights hiking the Mourne Way. The first night they camped on Pigeon Rock beside the Mourne wall and witnessed this beautiful sunset. The 2nd night they camped in Meelmore Lodge. They used water purification tablets and collected water from streams, brought all their own camping gear and food as part of the Chief Scout Award requirements. They had a great time and left nothing but their footprints!
