The entire board of Scouting Ireland is expected to stand down to be replaced in October as part of a major governance overhaul.
The organization is in the middle of a controversy over their handling of a rape allegation made in 2016, concerning two adult leaders following an incident in 2009. Last January, a confidential review by safeguarding expert Ian Elliott found the handling of the allegation was deeply flawed.
In April, Minister for Children Katherine Zappone suspended State funding to the organization, following reports in The Irish Times detailing Mr. Elliotts findings. [ ]
Members will vote on adopting proposed reforms at an extraordinary general meeting in Dublin on Saturday. The proposals include changes to how their board is made up, such as introducing external directors. Elections will be held at a second EGM in October, to replace the current board.
A statement to members from interim board chair Annette Byrne and national secretary Charles McGuinness said the organization will not survive if the reforms are rejected.

This was in the leftists plans all along. Throw a bunch of perverts in with boys and let them follow their base instincts. Results in lawsuits, and you will eventually kill off the scouting organization.
Now add in girls ...
This will ultimately destroy the BSA, as was their intent. That is why I left and pulled my son out when the Scouts allowed in gay leadership.
I have been involved in LDS Scounting off and on, all of my life, and have a 13 year old boy. The LDS Church had 20% of all scouting and has recently left the scoutingprogram.
I am saddened that the Scouting leaders didn’t stand on principle and stand up to the left which is resulting in a destruction of this great program.
This story won’t be the last, as families trying to promote value in their young me continue to learn of these types of incidents and leave the scouting program.
Crime is legal is you’re black. Rape is legal if you’re gay.
Resigned for rape? I thought that was soon to be a merit badge.
