Save Clare Games

Do you want to #SaveClareGames? Join us on Tuesday 14th Dec at 8pm on Zoom.


Clare Community Games was founded in 1971. In this, our 50th year, we are struggling to fill all the positions on our County Executive Committee. If we fail to fill these critical positions then Clare Community Games will not be in a position to participate in Community Games competitions during 2022. We are asking for the help of Community Games supporters in Clare to get these positions filled so that we can look forward to a successful 2022. It will be a great pity, particularly for all the children in the county, especially on this special anniversary, if we are unable to participate in Community Games activities in the years ahead. Your county needs you. #SaveClareGames

Please show your support and register to attend this online Zoom meeting. Details will be circulated the day before the meeting takes place.
