Clara - New club house plans sent for planning permission

WEEK IN REVIEW- This week has been a good week for the hurling club, the U16 went to Ballyhale on Thursday and won by a great score of 6-19 to 3-6. A great win well done to all the players and coaches, especially having played a Football match on Monday (winning 1-12 to Kilmacow 0-4) . After that win the junior hurlers could not be over shadowed and went out and beat James Stephens on a score line of 3-16 to 1-10. This means that in the last 2 weeks Clara hurlers have won at u14, u16, Junior and Intermediate levels, for any club that is brilliant. Well Done to all involved. With the juniors playing Saturday in Tullaroan, the Intermediates playing in Thomastown on Sunday and U14 play in Clara on Monday all support would be great.
