The Junior A Championship semi final will be played on Sunday October 2, at 4pm in Cratloe against Truagh/Clonlara. All support will be welcomed by the girls who have trained hard to reach this stage in the competitions.
The girls in the local Camogie Club would also like to congratulate Ruan XL shop on winning the best marketing award at the Retail Awards last week. Since the shop opened in the village two years ago, the Rice family has been a huge support to the local community and has brought a new impetus to life in the village and local area.​

Crafts Return.
Wednesday Oct. 5 is the return date for the craft group returning to Toonagh Hall from 11am. Anyone interested in any craft - knitting, crochet, patchwork, embroidery is welcome to bring their work to the gathering where there’ll be a cuppa, some home baking and advice/tips, if needed.

Coffee for Hospice.
The Toonagh school Parents Association wishes to thank everyone who helped make the Coffee Morning it hosted in Toonagh Hall on Wednesday last, in aid of Cahercalla Hospice, such a success. €690 was raised on the morning and it was a wonderful gathering meeting locals and new faces as well as having all the students and staff of Toonagh N.S. pop in for a visit and a cuppa.

Clothes Collection.
A gentle reminder to those thinking of doing a clear out in the next fortnight that Toonagh School will hold a clothing collection on October 14th where all clothing, shoes,​ bedlinen, towels,​etc ( no duvets or pillows please) can be dropped to Toonagh Hall. Monies raised from this will go towards purchasing essential resources for the school.​
