Jumping in Belgium.
Local man, Ralph Morgan from Nooan owns a horse which represented Ireland at the World Breeders Championship held in Lanaken, Belgium last week.  Orestus Clover, the five year old horse was ridden by Jessica Burke and acquitted itself very well, coming third out of 150 five year olds in the Consolational final.

Family Fun Bingo.

Corofin/Ruan played Clooney/Quin in the u16A semi final in Sixmilebridge at the weekend, with the game going on to extra time. After a thrilling battle, Corofin/Ruan emerged as winners. They now meet Sixmilebridge in the final.
The under 10s participated in a tournament hosted by Wolfe Tones GAA Club in  Shannon at the weekend. This group of boys has made great progress this year, training twice a week and playing games most weekends.  
All the players got game time in the tournament and great credit is due to their mentors and parents for their enthusiasm and persistence over the past months.

The Juniors beat Wolfe Tones on Sunday evening last in the fourth round of the Championship in Shannon Camogie pitch.
They now play Tulla in the last game of the group. It’s a home game for the Ruan Club on Saturday or Sunday of this week (they don’t have a date yet, unless you’d be able to find out by the time these get in it might be in the sports section?)
The girls in the u13B team had a tough game against Kilmaley at the weekend. Both teams played very well, with Kilmaley coming out on top at the final whistle.
