For as long as we have been in existence, humans have had a fascination with mountains. That mindset is not lost on scouts and scouters alike in DLS. The yearly Mountain Pursuit Challenges covering all four provinces of Ireland are received with bated breath and great excitement. The route card (usually) being completed in the back of the car while the Leaders’ choice of tunes are systematically slated by the scouts as the journey on the motorways continues, and the occasional wrong turn on the narrow, winding mountain roads. The car quickly parked, as we set off for a weekend away from the mundanity of fast paced school and work life.
