Ruan Camogie Cub  Well done to Ruan Camogie Cub on their brilliant St. Stephen's Day 'Virtual Wren', which they hosted via their Facebook page. Such a fab and varied array of acts ... music and dance performances by club members and their families from throughout the parish (both home and abroad), clips from member's work days, art and 'baking' coverage. Amazing talent. 
Bualadh Bos Mór to those involved in organising it and to everyone who took part. It was lovely to look at all the clips and performances
