  2. Black & white photo was I believe the very first meeting of the new Millstreet scout troop in the Carnegie Hall, no uniforms had been purchased yet! If I remember names rightly Desmond Brennan, ?, Dermot Twomey?, Feilim Maxwell, Denis O’Regan, John Hickey, Pat Murphy, ?, Second row Pat O’Mahony?, ?, John Murphy, Niall Moynihan, Alan O’Mahoney, John Riordan, JD Corcoran, James Mannix, Kevin Brennan. I remember learning the scout salute on that first night. Many happy memories, we were the first scouts in Millstreet so there was a lot of making it up as we went along, always with enthusiasm.
