JANUARY is all about fresh starts and taking better care of yourself, but what if you could help someone else while you’re at it?
There are a lot of clubs and societies who do great work around Co Clare, raising money for charity and helping people through rough times.
And there are some clubs out there that are worth joining just for the pure craic of it.
