First Years Soccer Team reach Munster Final
Heartbreak as 1st year soccer team lost Munster Final 3-1 after extra time. Brandon Ryan Webster’s 1st half goal had us 1-0 up with 10 minutes left. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Scoil Ruáin is very proud of the team. Onwards & upwards! Best of luck to Killorgan as they progress to the next round.

Students from Coisceim, Scoil Ruain and An Cuan, Dun Iascaigh, Cahir came together for an Interschool’s activity in Kilkenny recently.
