The u16s got their championship off to a winning start, when they overcame The Burren in Lisdoonvarna on Fri. last.  It was played as a 12 a side, as Ruan had only 12 players available on the day, the final score was 7 - 5 to 1 - 2 in favour of Ruan.
The Junior team will play the final group match in this championship campaign, when they meet Eire Og, in Eire Og pitch at 6.30 pm this Fri. evening.   The winner of this game secures a place in the playoff stages of the championship.
Kitchen Sessions.
The Kitchen Sessions return to Toonagh Hall on Friday nights from 7.00p.m. to 9.00p.m.   They proved a great success last year, with a variety of traditional music, song and dance - from brush dancing, sean nos, step dancing and set dancing taking place, and it is expected that the sessions will grow on from where they finished in June, as they proved very enjoyable for young and old.
Ruan/Corofin u16s will meet Feakle/Killanena, in Div. 1 semi final on this Saturday in Clarecastle, at 3.00p.m.   It is hoped that the players and mentors, who have done so well to get to this stage, will be well supported on the day.
