The Ruan girls got off to a great start in the first round of the U14C Championship when they met Parteen at the weekend. They came away with a scoreline of 4.7 to 1 point after a match played in great spirit on a beautiful spring morning.
Local Camogie player, Louise McDonnell from Dysart scored 1 goal 2 points on Sun. last when Clare played Roscommon in the Littlewoods Div. 3 League in Athleague. They are now through to the semifinal on Easter Sun. when they meet Dublin.

Craft Mornings.
The ladies who attend the Craft mornings in Toonagh Hall on Wed. mornings have taken a two week break for Easter and will return on Wed. 26th April. On Fri. last they presented a Banner to Toonagh School which members made for the children to take to school  and parish games in the future.
Miriam Strands' sewing skills are very much in evidence on the Banner which depicts Hurling/Camogie, basketball and music, with the school crest organised by Laura Cahir, and the children were delighted to receive it and hope to give it an outing in the very near future.
