Ruan Camogie Success
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. A fantastic display of camogie was given by both teams.

Well done to all the girls their mentors and of course their parents.
