Camogie Club.
Members of our local Camogie Club posted their contributions to the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on its Facebook page last week, featuring music, Camogie skills and sending St. Patrick’s Day wishes. Elvis and Bella, a local horse and pony, bedecked with festive ribbons and bows in the green, white and gold, with their riders Brenda and Anne, members of the Camogie club, ambled along the roads in Larchill and Ballygriffey, bringing a smile to all who came across them on the day.

Toonagh NS Rock your Odd Socks
March 22 has been observed by the United Nations as World Down Syndrome Day since 2012, to challenge perceptions of Down Syndrome and to enable people with Down Syndrome to speak up, be heard and respected as valued members of society as they strive to achieve their goals and passions.
 On Monday, Toonagh School celebrated this day, and, to raise awareness of the differences that make us all unique, the school children wore odd socks coming to school. They also took part in the Mace 'Lots of Socks' colouring competition in conjunction with World Down Syndrome Day 2021, using their talents in a fun way to bring awareness to Down Syndrome in their community.
