Chief Commissioner's Award so far....

Monday morning the sense of nervous excitement was thick in the air. Bellies were stuffed and cars were loaded as they headed into the unknown for a great adventure.

They were dropped at various points around the Burren, handed their folders (their bible for the next five days), had a final photo taken before their hair got mussed and were left to begin their journey.

Áine, Aisling and Lauren were dropped at Doolin Pier and decided to head to the Cliffs of Moher before heading back to Doolin to catch the ferry to Inis Oírr to spend the night. Orla and Lucy started in Ballyvaughan and completed an epic journey through the woods and down the coast to Fanore Beach. Mairéad and Ciara were dropped at Doonyvardan and after careful planning headed to Lisdoonvarna. Eimhear, Laura and Vera were dropped near the Cliffs of Moher and walked along the picturesque cliff walk before lodging in Doolin.

Over the past couple of days they have been making friends, investigating projects and searching for service projects (always a tough task to complete). The teams are doing projects on things like: living on an island; local crafts people; festivals; caves; cliffs; tourism; development education; the Geopark and lots more. They also have to write a song about their experiences and create a brochure to entice people to the Burren.

So far we've been lucky with the weather. Some wet spells but mostly the sun is shining on our Teams.

Keep sending your messages to the girls and help keep their spirits high.
