Thought for the Week:


"Welcoming Christ in the peace of our nights,

in the silence of our days, in the beauty of creation,

in the hours of intense inner combat.

Welcoming him means knowing that he will be with us in every situation, always".

(Br. Roger)

Ruan Gaa:
Ruan Minor Club held a very successful review meeting and AGM on Tuesday last. There was a good attendance where Claire McDonagh (Secretary) and Donal O'hAiniféin (Chairperson) gave comprehensive reports on the year's activities. While no silverware was won in 2014, players and mentors were complimented for their hard effort throughout the year. Donal and Claire were elected again to their officer positions for 2015 and both were complimented for the excellent work they are doing for our minor club. A good discussion took place on the Ruan underage hurling. The club is seeking and needs more help with all age groups, especially U10, U12, U16 and Minor. If you are willing to help out please make contact with Donal, Claire or any club member.
