Fundraising Success.
Mike Gardiner and Noreen Ferns played in Toonagh Hall on Friday night, bringing out the dancers of the area for a very enjoyable night out. The event enabled the organisers to display the latest improvements to the kitchen and outside canopy carried out by the Ruan Dysart Resource Group workers.  The tables were laden with appetizing treats and refreshments were served. 
The support of the community and all who sponsored prizes, baked and publicised the night is very much appreciated.

Ruan Hurling and Camogie Camp
Despite the wet conditions during the recent Ruan Hurling and Camogie Camp, the spirits of all involved were not dampened, in fact, the group seemed to rise above the weather to make it a very enjoyable experience. 
Eimear Considine who plays rugby for Munster and Ireland, Laura McMahon who plays for Newmarket on Fergus and is Captain of Clare Senior Camogie team and Peter Dugan, Clare hurling star, visited the camp and imparted some important and life-long tips to the children in attendance.
The camp wouldn’t exist without the input of the committee, parents, mentors and coaches who go ‘all out’ to make it such a success and an enjoyable week for the children.
