 Underage Hurling News:

Well done to the under-16 team who had a comprehensive victory over Shannon with the semi-final on this Sunday against Lisdoonvarna in Clooney at 12 noon.  The under-15 team and supporters received a great reception last weekend in Armagh, and the team really enjoyed themselves especially the adventure activity organised on Saturday evening in Carlingford for the Ruan and Craobh Rua teams.  Photographs of the weekend activities will be published shortly in the Ruan GAA website.
