Community Games.
 
Many children in the parish take part in the various competitions run by the Community Games organisation, and there is a dedicated local committee which organises these competitions.   
They held a collection before both masses in the parish at the weekend which was very well supported and raised €475, for which they are very grateful.
 
Camogie.
 
The Junior team played their last game of the North Munster league, when they hosted Knockshegowna, from Tipperary, on Friday last.   The ended the campaign on a high note with a win, on a scoreline of 4-12 to 2 goals.   Refreshments were served afterwards in Purcells.   After gaining valuable experience whilst partaking in this league, the team will now focus on preparation for the Championship, which gets underway in August.   
On Sat. last twelve u10 camogie players took part in a blitz hosted by neighbours, Corofin.  Unfortunately, two of the participating teams were unable to travel, so Ruan played two games against the hosts, Corofin.   A great morning's camogie was enjoyed by all invloved, aided by the sun, when it appeared, and refreshments were provided by Corofin.
A number of u18 Ruan girls are currently in training with Corofin, under an assistance arrangement. Their games kick off mid July and they will take part in the u18B Division.   
On the County front, Lauren O'Donoghue lined out at wing forward, when Clare u16's took on  Dublin on Sun. last in Clooney.   
Unfortunately, on the day, Dublin took the honours.   This concludes the Countys involvement in this series.  
Eimear O'Brien is on the Clare u13 panel and they are due to take part in blitzes against Dublin, Galway and Tipperary in the coming weeks.   
The Club is also represented at u14 level by Louise McDonnell and Roisin O'Loughlin, whilst training has resumed with the u15 panel, of which Eimear Neilan is a member.   It is heartening to see so many budding camogie players being recognised at county level and is a great experience for the girls involved..

Hurling.
 
The amalgamated Ruan/Corofin under 16 hurlers got off to a great start last Sun, when they beat Kilmaley.   
They are competing in division "A" this year.  Their next match is against Feakle/Killanena on Sunday - time and venue to be decided.
 
 
Recent Death.
 
Funeral Mass and burial of ashes of the late Alfie Crowe, of Dysart and  U.S.A. will take place on this Thurs. 5th July in St.Tola's Church, Dysart, 
and in Dysart Graveyard at 12.00 noon.
