Ballynacally ICA’s quiz team with Mary Hester, Mary Hill and Marie Gordon competed in Clare Federation’s quiz in February and won the trophy. They represent Clare ICA at this month’s national finals in An Grianán. At their first 2018 meeting, Ballynacally held a short quiz, which was won by Marie Gordon and Mary Flynn — no doubt the practice paid off when it came to competing for a place in national finals. It’s the third time for Ballynacally to represent Clare Federation. They did so too in the 1980s and in 2004. Mary Hester was on each team.
