Fancy an Indian? Let’s go Dutch...

The Irish Girl Guides recently held a competition called Timpeall an Domhain (Around the World) and two units from Cork did us proud!

Arbutus Guides, from Summerhill, won the senior section and Marian Guides, from Bishopstown, won the jumior section. The competition involves members of Irish Girl Guides learning about a country of their choosing.

Arbutus Guides focussed on India. They learned all about the ancient body art of henna and impressed the judges with their culinary and acting skills by cooking Indian dishes and performing a play about Mother Teresa.

“They were really enthusiastic throughout the entire competition and put in a lot of work both at Guide meetings and at home,” said Arbutus Guides Leader, Helen Moriarty. “They enjoyed learning henna, which they chose to teach as their craft element, as well as making various Indian meals and meeting Guides from all over Ireland. They were thrilled once they heard that they won!”

Marian Guides focused on the Netherlands. “It was hard work but the girls took on the challenge, worked well as a team and had a lot of fun along the way,” said Marian Guides leader Clare Flynn. “The girls were thrilled to be named winners of the junior section and all the leaders are very proud of them.”

Any girls over five, who dream of bringing honour to Cork, are welcome to join the Guides. Volunteer leaders are needed, but need to be over 18. Contact Fiona Murdoch, 01-6683898/085-8570565,
