Johnny Ryan RIP

Camross GAA Club would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the family of Johnny Ryan, Dunbell, Clara, Kilkenny who tragically died in a recent farm accident.

The late Johnny was one of six Ryan clan that were part of the Clara team that faced Camross in a very tempestuous Leinster club semi-final in Geraldine Park in Athy.

Camross won the game by a point and went on to play their one and only hurling game in Croke Park losing out to Rathnure of Wexford in a thrilling game.
