The Ruan Intermediate team beat Bodyke in the second round of the championship at the weekend in Newmarket on Fergus. The under 17s beat Feakle/Killanena, and the under 13 Academy team were beaten by Tulla - a busy time for hurling.

Recent Death.
The death has taken place of Paddy Hayes, Moyhree, Ruan, peacefully, at his home. Paddy was a man has left people with many good memories. He was skilled at fixing machinery, especially tractors.​ He was always ready to help his neighbours, he used to give them lifts to hurling matches and drag hunts over the years. He was an avid reader and had a great love of horses, so it was fitting that his remains were taken to St. Mary’s Church, Ruan in a horse drawn carriage, where requiem mass was celebrated. His remains were then taken ​ for cremation to Shannon Crematorium.
Paddy is survived by his daughter Geraldine Sherlock (née Vaughan), son in law Patrick, grandchildren Sinead, Leighara, Patrick and Thomas, nieces, nephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.
The death has also taken place of Thomas Leahy, St. Michael’s Villas, Ennis, brother of Michael and Martin, Ruan.
