The Ruan u10 team took part in a blitz on Saturday morning in Newmarket. They played games against Newmarket and Inagh. This was the final blitz of the year for them and the girls and their mentors have had great fun and learned a lot over the season.
The U13s played Clooney Quin on Sunday in Clooney and their next game is next Sunday at 12 noon in Ruan.
against Ballyea.
The Ruan under​ 18 camogie team won the Minor B final on Saturday, beating Broadford, in a very exciting game played in Fr. McNamara Park. The cup was presented by Joe O’Donnell, Clare Camogie Chairman. The girls and their mentors were welcomed back as they travelled through Toonagh and into Ruan by a bonfire and supporters showing their appreciation for the hard work and dedication they’ve put in over the season.
The under 16s beat The Banner on Wednesday of last week in the u16 Championship.
The Junior C team play Eire Og in the semi final on Saturday and the Junior A team plays Inagh/Kilnamona on Sunday in the final round (times for both games to be decided).
Ciara Punch, Tara Moroney and Cliona Jones, who had played with the under 18s who took the Minor B title on Saturday were out early on Sunday representing their Club with Clare Camogie. They were divided up between two Clare teams, one of which took home the Division 2 title in a game in Kilkenny. The other game was played in Abbotstown, Dublin. Despite having played on Saturday, they did the local club proud on Sunday, playing their games with great enthusiasm in terrible weather conditions.
The Junior C ladies played Cratloe on Saturday evening. However Cratloe came out on top but it is heartening to have a second team in this grade.

Store Officially Opens.
The XL Store which opened in Ruan two years ago had delayed the official opening due to restrictions during the pandemic, but the owners remedied that situation on Saturday last when Quinton Rice and his family cut the ribbon, having organised a family fun day. People from within and outside the parish gathered at the shop for the festivities. There was face painting and balloon making for the children, a robot, a bear and lots more fun activities. Hot and cold refreshments were served and it was a very happy occasion for all who attended.

The U17 academy team played away to Scariff/ Ogonelloe in Scariff and came away with a win. The U17 B quarter final was played in Ruan against Broadford with the home team coming out on top and on Monday evening the U17 academy team had a win against Newmarket in Corofin.
