Well done to the Clare team and the four girls from our local Club, Louise and Claire McDonnell, Niamh Lyons and Rebecca Crowe on their win over Armagh at the weekend. They now go on to play Tyrone in Tyrone on Saturday next.
The Ruan u15 girls overcame Sixmilebridge last week, in a great game of Camogie, taking them closer to the final. Their next game is this week, against Broadford/Parteen.

Down Syndrome Tour de Munster.
The 10th 600Km annual four day charity cycle will take place from 8-11 August.  This year the cycle is raising funds for the Munster Branches of Down Syndrome Ireland.
