Final for u13s.
The u13 camogie team has secured a place in the final of the u13C, after a thrilling win over Tulla, in a replay.   They had drawn with Tulla in their previous meeting and little separated the sides again this time.  The supporters were entertained right to the final minute and the game ended on a scoreline of 4-4 to 3-3 in favour of Ruan.  They now meet Ballyea in the final on this Sun. 20th, at 10.45, the venue yet to be decided.
Training for all groups has now finished for the winter.  Great credit is due to all the trainers who work voluntarily with the players throughout the season.
Fashion Extravaganza.
The Clare County Camogie Board is hosting a fashion show to raise funds for Fr. McNamara Camogie Grounds, in Dromoland Castle on Fri. 8th Nov. next.  Local players will swap their jerseys for high street fashion on the catwalk on the night.  There will be interval entertainment and a raffle, and a limited number of tickets is available.  Contact Brenda at 0861593153.
An under strength Ruan side were defeated by Smith O'Briens by 2 points in an exciting Senior Championship clash played in Shannon, and this ends Ruan's chance of qualifying for the knock-out stages.  On a day when Ruan were missing several key players, due to injury, Smith O'Briens were deserving winners.
Clothes Collection for School.
The Parents Association of Toonagh School has previously raised money to buy books for the school library through a clothes collection.  This has proved so successful, they have now organised another one where unwanted, clean clothing will be recycled to raise money for the school.  All types of clothing, bags and shoes (shoes tied together), hats and belts, towels and curtains, bed linen (sheets, pillow cases, duvet covers) will be accepted.  All clothing and textiles collected are recycled locally in Ireland. This time the funds raised will go towards resources for learning support in the school.
Toonagh Hall will be opened next Mon. 21st Oct.  from 8.45 - 10.30a.m, from 1.45p.m. to 3.15p.m. and from 6.00p.m. to 8.00p.m. and all donations of clothes will be very welcome.
