Best of luck to all the participants from all over County Clare who are taking part in the May National Festival in UL this weekend. Check out latest updates on upcoming May National Festival in UL.

The next County meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 5th June @ 9:00pm in the West County. It is very important that delegates from each area attend.

Competitors must compete in the Community Games area in which they reside. Competitors attending school outside their area of residence must not compete for the area in which their school is situated. The rules must be complied with or your area may be disqualified from an event if proven that these rules were not followed.

Any areas who are due medals for any competitions to date should contact Rob Stephen  These will also be available at the next county meeting on 5th June.

Areas are encouraged to enter the Steps to Health (STH) for 2018.  Clare have 4 areas but we are hopeful that more will take part and here are some of the reasons why: 1. Registration for STH will be online for 2018 making it easier for Areas; 2. There will be €200 awarded for achieving gold, €100 awarded for achieving silver and €50 awarded for achieving bronze; 3. There are points awarded which are added to the overall area award score; 4. There will be free affiliation for your area for the following year. Great incentives!
