On behalf of all at Clane GAA we would like to express our sincere condolences to the McDonnell family on the death of young Ruairí who passed peacefully yesterday at the family home after a long illness, bravely borne in the loving arms of his Mam and Dad, Ruth and Martin.

At a time when the whole country was in lockdown over the last few years, the Roar for Ruairí campaign got us all out and about walking, cycling, running and even singing, uniting the parish of Clane & Rathcoffey as well as communities and GAA clubs all across the island of Ireland and farther afield. Ruairí was a superhero, an inspiration to us all and he will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Funeral Arrangements are available on at

Ruairí will be reposing at home. House private to relatives and close friends. Ruairí's funeral mass will take place on Friday at 11am in the Church of St. Patrick & St. Brigid, Clane followed by burial in Mainham Cemetery, Clane.
