Changes to Mass Times in Imeall Boirne.
 Following a recent public meeting of Imeall Boirne Cluster, changes to weekend and weekday masses have been proposed.  All the churches in the Cluster are affected and a sheet with the proposed changes was attached to this past weekend’s newsletters.
The following is what pertains to the churches of Ruan and Dysert - fixed Mass schedule each weekend of the year,
Option 1,  Mass in Ruan on Saturday evenings at 8.00pm:  
Option 2, on the first weekend of every month Mass will be held in Dysert on Saturday evening at 8.00pm. 
As there will be only two priests covering the Imeall Boirne Cluster, Fr. Pat O’Neill and Fr. Damian Nolan, by having ninety minutes from the start of one mass to the start of the next mass, one priest, if required, can celebrate all four masses at the weekend
Over longer, or arranged periods, when a priest is absent, then it is proposed that Eucharistic Services be arranged for some of the mass times.  These may also be arranged for the churches which have no celebration of Mass on any given weekend, once it does not clash with the Mass in the parish.
These proposals will be finalised at the next Cluster meeting which will take place on Wed. July 4, next at 8.00pm in St. Patrick’s Hall in Corofin, and will come into effect on the first Sunday in September, for a trial period of six months, after which it will be reviewed.  It is hoped that people will attend this meeting, as it is important that their views  be aired and listened to, and all are welcome.

Handball Success.
Toonagh hosted the Clare GAA Handball Division 4 Singles final on Monday recently, when Kevin Hassett (Toonagh) took on Brian Griffin (Toonagh). In what was a thrilling game with great passages of play it was Kevin Hassett who emerged as County Champion. It was a great achievement for Toonagh GAA Handball Club having both players in the final, and it comes on the back of winning the Clare Division 4 Club League earlier this year.  
Well done to all involved in the Club.

Clothes Collection.
The Parents Association of Toonagh School appreciates the response it got from the community in its latest appeal for the clothes collection it held recently.  

It raised €1,120, which will be used for the benefit of the schoolchildren.

Cumann na mBunscoil Camogie.
Ruan/Toonagh Schools' camogie team won the final of the Cumann na mBunscoil Games in Cusack Park against Kilmurray, on Tuesday, June 12.  On the way to the final, the girls met Ennis National School, Kilmurray, Tulla and Sixmilebridge.  They were very well supported on the day and came away with a victory over Kilmurray on a scoreline of 9-5 to 8-4 in a game that was played in a very sporting manner.  Credit to both Principals, Cyril Lyons, Ruan and Donnchadh Kelleher, Toonagh and to all involved in bringing the girls to the final.The plaque was presented to joint captains, Aine Jones and Niamh Glass.

Children’s Book Sale.
The children’s book sale which was to be held in Toonagh Hall on Tuesday, June 12, has now been postponed until next Tuesday, June 19, from 9am to 12 noon, as many of the children attended the Cumann an mBunscoil final to support their classmates and friends. Children’s books may still be left into the school until that date.
