Boys’ Brigade

The 1st Cork Company of the Boys’ Brigade has been meeting in the Canon Packham Hall in Douglas for many years. Though it has members from various parts of the city and county, it has had a long association with the parish. The current brigade captain is Mrs. Tanya Meikle. Both boys and girls can be members of this company. There are three sections – Anchors (for those in the junior end of primary school), Junior Section (for older primary school pupils) and Company Section (for teenagers). While the company generally meets in Douglas on Thursday evenings, they do go on trips and attend camps involving over night stays from time to time. Each year a ‘Display’ is held in the Canon Packham Hall which parents and other supporters of the Boys’ Brigade can attend. In the autumn of each year, the annual Enrollment Service takes place in St. Luke’s Church. The rector is the chaplain to this company.
