Junior A Football Championship: Clara beat Kilcormac/K 2-13 to 0-14 in the Junior A Football Championship last weekend.

The GAA Cul Camp is taking place in Clara from July 2 to 6. The camp is designed to cater for 2nd to 6th class pupils, but provisions can be made for a child in 1st class (only) who is participating in Gaelic games in their local club, and would feel comfortable in such an environment.

The Cul Camp will be held each day, Monday to Friday from 10am to 2.30pm. The cost is €55 for the 1st child, €45 for the 2nd child, and €40 for the 3rd and subsequent children. See promotional packs and book online at
