Thanks for Everything Niall Cunningham. The scones are on us when you visit nextThe campers, leaders, Dominicans and parents of the KYW would like to thank Niall Cunningham for his outstanding contribution to the organisation over the past 13 years that he has spent as a leader. For 3 of those years, Niall was Senior Leader of the group, and under his leadership the programme has reached new heights and achieved goals that we could only have dreamed of when the KYW was founded 8 years ago. 😄
Niall has been one of our most loved and highly respected leaders. He has inspired countless generations of campers and is a role model that our leaders, past, present and future aspire to be like. Between his presence on camp and the work that he did behind the scenes, Niall’s passion for Knockadoon has sparked a flame that will remain in the hearts of many for years to come.
Thank you for everything Niggs, you’ll be missed ...
