Ruan u13 Camogie team continued their good form in the B championship campaign on Saturday afternoon when they travelled to Clooney-Quin. The match was played at a very high standard with fabulous skills on show.  With a stiff cross field breeze slightly in their favour Ruan girls were on top from the start but failed to convert it to scores, only leading 0:2 to no score at halftime. However in the 2nd half, as space opened up Ruan got their scores going, winning 2:5 to 1:3. Well done to all the girls on an excellent performance. Fantastic effort, skills and determination was shown by the girls.
