Camogie Success.
Ruan/ Burren, captained by Rebecca Crowe, played Tulla/Bodyke in the U18C final last week, coming out on top, on a scoreline of 2-9 to 2-4.   Ruan/Burren had more of the play for most of the game,, with Tulla/Bodyke coming back into it in the 2nd half, however, Ruan/Burren, who just had the bare 13 on the panel, stayed ahead until the final whistle, emerging with a well deserved win.  They had already been beaten by Tulla/Bodyke in the group games, so victory was all the sweeter and all the girls, except one, will still be under age next year.
The Juniors will meet Killanena/Tulla in the semi-final of their competition at 2.30 this coming Sat., at a venue to be decided.
The U13s will play their final game of the season against Bodyke at 6.30p.m., in Bodyke on this Friday.
Tidy Towns Competition.
Ruan and its environs did very well in this year's Tidy Towns Competition, gaining six points on last year's results 283 from 277. 
The Tidy Towns Committee appreciates the work that has gone into this improvement, year on year, ensuring that the work of the local community is acknowledged, particularly the work of the local Rural Resource Group in the parish.
The Minor hurlers contested the semi final against Sixmilebridge in Tulla on Fri. eve. last. Ruan started without three of their usual players, however the three who filled in played well and Ruan came away with a win, on a scoreline of 16 points to 1-8.  They will now meet Clonlara in the final.
The U16 Ruan/Corofin team were beaten in the quarter final by Broadford at the weekend, 2-8 to 1-6.  This was a disappointing result from Ruan/Corofin's point of view, as they had hoped to, at least, reach the semi final.
Tickets for the All Ireland will be distributed in Ruan Community Centre on this Fri. night, 20th, at 9.00p.m.
