Ruan GAA Club: The Ruan GAA club would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising campaign to date. The campaign’s objective is to raise funds needed to complete the development of our new stand, meeting room and gym. 

If you would like to donate, please contact any club officer or follow the instructions on the letters previously delivered to all parishioners. This development is a wonderful facility in our club and community and we hope people will get behind us one last time to raise the funds needed to fully complete it.
