Thought for the Week: - End of School Year


School time's almost over - School time's almost done

We've had a lot of learning - We've had a lot of fun.

We'll say goodbye to teachers - We'll put our books away.

Our school year is over now,

It's summertime - let's play!

 Ruan GAA

Ruan Minor Club - All Ireland Féile: Ruan were narrowly defeated after extra time in the Féile na nGael semi-final by Blackwater GAA from Wexford. Ruan had a great Féile campaign and after four matches played on Friday and Saturday they qualified for the semi-final on Sunday last in Omagh. 

While the players were naturally disappointed at losing out so narrowly they can be very proud of their efforts and they represented Ruan and Clare very well over the weekend. A huge crowd of supporters welcomed them back to Ruan on Sunday night. Great credit to the management team and players and hopefully this group of players will stick together and continue to do Ruan proud over the coming years.
