It is quite appropriate that one of the origin stories of Maynooth Scouts is in Joseph and his technicolour dreamcoat. Joseph or José Luis Lofrano tells an amazing story of how when he arrived in Maynooth from Venezuela that he lent his Campfire blanket/Coat to other students for a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. After the production a number of local boys from Maynooth approached the productions' "Joseph" about his coat and wanted to know about Scouting and how to join! They were told to talk to José Luis as he was the real person behind the "Dreamcoat" and was the "real Scout"! José Luis also tells about how the local Maynooth people referred to the scouts as the "Mad South Americans"!
