Cork Diocesan Youth Council spends weekend on Cape Clear

Recently Cork Diocesan Youth Council (CDYC) took a group of 22 young people and leaders to Cape Clear Island for the weekend. The weather was amazing, the group were so much fun.  They were joined by Simon Henry from the Church of Ireland Youth Department (CIYD), all the way from the North.

There were lots of adventures: snorkling, kayaking, a long walk in the fog for Sunday morning service in Irish, in fact there were lots of very long walks with Judy Peters at the front guiding the group. Google maps didn’t work though as reception is poor on the island, so everyone had to trust the tour guide!  Simon held workshops on the topic of Jesus Matters.

There was a fancy-dress quiz on Saturday evening as well.  Everyone had to dress up as their favourite thing and strut their stuff on the “catwalk”. Music was provided by the in house DJ Daragh! Even Simon “Cowell” flew in especially to judge the competition!

Enjoying Cape Clear – island life.

 

The weekend was finished off on Sunday with a boat trip out to the Fastnet lighthouse.
All in all it was just an AMAZING weekend.

An amazing weekend for Cork youth on Cape Clear.
