Toonagh Hall.
On this Thursday evening, July 22, between 6pm and 8pm, there will be a sale of Toonagh School schoolbooks and uniforms in Toonagh Hall. The organisers will also have a sale of cakes, books and good quality toys, which they hope will be well supported, as this is also a fundraiser for the ongoing costs of keeping the hall and sports complex open in these challenging times. This event will be run in adherence with all safety restrictions.

Recent Death.
The deaths have occurred of Martin Dormer, Ennis, father of Sabrina Brohan and brother of Pattie Griffin, Ballygriffey, and also of Nigel Bane, Newtown, Corofin, brother of Finan Bane, Ballygriffey.

Camogie News.
Members of the local Camogie Club in all age groups have been very active over the past week - the under 14’s had a great win over Kilkishen on Wednesday last. The under 12’s had a win over Truagh/Clonlara on Saturday, ​ in the first round of that competition. The under 16’s ​ lost out to Scariff on Friday evening. The adult Junior team beat Parteen on Thursday and they now meet Feakle/Kilkishen at the weekend.
Aoife Anderson, a member of Ruan Camogie Club, played with the Clare Minors last week. They overcame Waterford in the Munster Final, with Aoife scoring a great goal in the process.
Brid MacNamara, also a member of the local Camogie Club and P.R.O. of Clare Camogie, will finish up her ‘one million steps for Clare Camogie’ on a visit to Ruan on Friday evening, July 30. Brid has visited all the Camogie Clubs in the county, receiving fantastic support on the journey and she hopes to have a good turn-out on Friday evening. These funds are essential to help Clubs throughout the county in their efforts to provide facilities and look after girls of all ages interested in Camogie.
