Ruan Camogie Club.
The local camogie club has had a busy season, at. underage and minor level.   It is now hoping to revive adult camogie in the parish in 2012, and hopes to be able to field a Junior team in theJunior League and Championship.   In order to establish whether there will be sufficient numbers, anyone interested is asked to contact Brenda O'Donoghue on 0861593153.   All levels of ability would be most welcome.
The Minor Camogie team played Whitegate at the weekend in a replay of the semi final, when, at half time the Ruan girls were down 12 points, however, they made a great comeback and really tried in the second half.   
They were level almost at full time, when Whitegate pulled away with a 2 point margin, leaving the final score at 5-8 to 6-7.

Dublin City Marathon.
Local man, Aidan Woodford, took part in the Dublin City Marathon on Bank Holiday Monday.   He completed it in 5 hrs. 38 mins, and was delighted with his time, and the support he has received in raising funds for the Children's Charity, Barnardos.
Meanwhile, Tracy Guilfoyle from Toonagh, broke the record of 3 hours,  and has become the National Champion, over 45.   
Tracy holds Dance Aerobic Classes in Toonagh Hall on Thursday nights, and only took up running a number of years ago, so is a great example of what one can do if the will is there!
