Huge congratulations to the Ruan U13 camogie team who fought a hard battle in tough conditions to win the U13 B final against Ballyea in Eire-Óg pitch on Sunday last with the final score of Ruan 2-02 to Ballyea 2-01.Throughout the match scoring chances were being cut out by great defensive covering from both sides, which should be commended.

Work doesn't stop prayer and prayer doesn't stop work.
It requires only that small raising of mind to Him,
"I love You God, I trust You, I believe in You, I need You now"
small things like that. They are wonderful prayers.       (Mother Teresa).
