Handwriting 2017

The St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games Handwriting competitions were held in St Joseph's Secondary School, Tulla on Sat 18th Feb. A very large number participated in the different age groups. The standard of writing was extremely high giving the judges a very difficult job in deciding the winners. It was co ordinated by Mary Moran with a large crew of helpers. Thanks to all of them. In the U10 & U12 competitions the children participated for the chance to represent Clare in the National Finals. The U14 competition was a County event only. Medals and certs are available for collection by an area representative at the monthly county meetings.
