The Clare  Camogie team, including Ruan Camogie players Rebecca Crowe, Louise and Claire McDonnell and Niamh Lyons lost out to Limerick in the National League semi-final on Sunday. They now look ahead to the Munster Championship in three weeks time against Waterford.

Corofin/Ruan had a win over Crusheen/Tubber in Corofin at the weekend and Ruan beat Eire Og  in round 3 of the Division 2 League in Ruan.
Ruan GAA Club is at an exciting stage of its latest Club Development, namely  the completion of a 300 seater stand, meeting room and gym. 
Money from the club lotto fund has been used to finance the works, and this is due to the dedication and hard work of the Club officers, lotto teams and loyal supporters.  
The Club will be launching a major fundraising campaign in the coming weeks to complete the development.  To raise the funds needed it is intended to sell seats in the new stand for €100 each. Families, players (past and present), supporters and individuals are invited to buy a seat, to enable the Club to finish the project this year, debt free.  
The development will be of huge benefit to the community and the Club, and the support of the community will be greatly appreciated.

Family Fun Bingo.
The local Scouts group is holding a Family Fun Bingo in Toonagh Hall this Friday evening, April 12, at 7.30pm to raise funds for all the activities the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will partake in this year. It is hoped that there will be a good turnout, as there is a large number of children involved in the Scouts here in the parish and it is a great experience for the children involved.
