Following the ceremony, the couple, with the wedding party, enjoyed the reception at the Armada Hotel, Spanish Point.
Ruan Gymkhana.
There was a good turnout at the Ruan Gymkhana on Sunday last, with the sunny weather playing a big part in the success and enjoyment of the day.   All jumping competitions had big entries, with participants even travelling from Cork, Kerry, Offaly, Wexford and Kilkenny.  
A Vintage Run also took place, with motorbikes, cars and tractors driving through the village to the delight of spectators.  
The Dog Show also attracted a fine number of entries and the day was rounded off by the Show Dance which was held in Purcell's later in the evening, bringing an end to another very successful Gymkhana. 
U14 Champions.
Corofin/Ruan won in a hard fought final, over Tulla, on Friday last in Clarecastle, on a scoreline of 7-7 to 5-5.   After the game, Bord na nOg Chairman, Martin Reynolds, presented the u14 Cup to the joint captains, Colm Haugh and Gearoid Cahill, amid great scenes of celebration.   Credit is due to the boys and their mentors who trained this team - Michael Neylon, Dermot McMahon, Declan Haugh, Donal O'Loughlin and Joe O'Donovan.
