Apology to Robert Ruane.The GAA acknowledges that at a Code of Behaviour hearing on 1 November 2017 that Robert Ruane was wrongly identified as having intimidated a juvenile.
This allegation became public knowledge, including to members of St Marys GAA Club.
This allegation is entirely false and defamatory of Robert Ruane and it is withdrawn unreservedly.
The GAA apologise for any distress caused to Robert Ruane or his family and his many friends at St Marys GAA Club.
The organisation has taken appropriate steps to redress the damage caused to him.
