In excess of 120 children took part. The standard was extremely high which gave the judges a very difficult task to select the children to represent Clare in the National Finals in Athlone in August. The co-ordinator was Mary Moran with assistance from Mary McNamara and a number of students from St Joseph's school in Tulla.  Many thanks to PRO, Mary Phelan for circulating results.
