Scouting Ireland

Scouting Ireland is one of the largest national youth organisations in Ireland, dedicated to the development of life skills for young people. Since 1908, young people in Ireland have been involved in the Scouting movement. Today, our Scout Groups involve over 26,500 young people and 10,000 volunteers across Ireland.

Scouting Ireland aims to nurture the personal development and non-formal education of young people through the Scout Method, which is an approach unique to Scouting throughout the world.
