Walk for Huntington’s Association.
The Toonagh Walk which was held on Sunday, Jan. 13 last attracted walkers from all over the county, and beyond. Despite the wet conditions on the day, there was a great response to the appeal for support and, as a result, Denise Whelan has lodged €7,500 to the Huntington’s Disease Association account.  These, much needed, funds go to support families impacted by the disease, and the walk was to create awareness about the disease which affects hundreds of people all over the country. Great credit is due to all who organized the walk, put up signs, baked, gave raffle prizes and helped out on the day, in whatever capacity, their support is hugely appreciated.

Toonagh Hall and Sports Complex.
Due to the disappointing turnout at the A.G.M. of Toonagh Hall and Sports Complex on Friday, Feb. 1, it was not possible to elect a new committee.  A final meeting will be held on this Thursday, Feb. 7, at 8pm in Toonagh Hall. As the present committee members are stepping down, if a new committee is not elected, the facility will, unfortunately, have to close down.  It is imperative that a representative from each of the groups and clubs which use the Complex are present at this meeting. The closure of the facility would be a huge loss to the school, local clubs and the wider community.

The death has occurred of Ann Rose ((Nancy) Keane, Cusack Road, Ennis, mother of Mary Keane and Patrick Keane who live in Dysart.  The death has also taken place of Maura Hitchen, England, sister of Joe Keane, Ruan.
