Ronan's cancer scare confirmed
The bad news about Ronan is covered in the national media today, where it's been confirmed that he's suffering from testicular cancer. As the Indo reports, Ronan isn't the first high-profile GAA player to contract this problem, with Kildare's Dermot Earley and Cork's Joe Deane both having successfully recovered from it in the recent past. In Deane's case, he was operated on after last September's hurling final and is already back training and playing with the Cork hurlers. Let's hope Ronan's recovery is as swift.
