All Ireland Finals Community Games.
Neasa Ni Ainifein was a member of the Clare team which won Gold in the u13 cross country event at the Community Games finals held in Athlone over the weekend and she came 6th individually.  Sarah Cantillon reached the final in swimming, getting out of her heat and semi final, and got a personal best in the finals.

Training Camp.
Ruan Hurling and Camogie Clubs are holding a training camp in the hurling field in Ruan from  next Tue. 23rd to Fri. 26th August.  All children between the ages of 5 and 13 are welcome to attend, with registration taking place on the Tue. morning.  It promises to be a great week of fun, hurling, camogie, and a great way to finish off the school holidays.

Fitness for Fun.
John Conroy has resumed his exercise classes in Ruan Community Centre on Wednesdays from 1.15. - 2.15pm. It has been found that exercise can reduce the risk of developing some age-related diseases and disabilities,  and people with arthritis, heart disease or diabetes also benefit from regular physical activity. It can also help people with blood pressure, balance problems or difficulty walking. 
Those who have attended at the Community Centre over the year in Ruan have the height of praise for his classes and the benefits they have gained from attending them, and are looking forward to their return with much enthusiasm.  All are welcome.

Holiday in Lahinch.
Nine Senior Citizens from the parish enjoyed a holiday in Lahinch recently, organised by the local Senior Citizens Organisation.  They were looked after by members of the Association over the few days and enjoyed all Lahinch had to offer.  The members are grateful for the support of all who help with the church gate collection and the Ruan Gymkhana for their sizeable donation this year, which means they can continue with the holiday and the annual Christmas party, which the Senior Citizens so look forward to each year.

The wedding has taken place, in Rath Church, of Paddy, son of Michael and Noreen Callinan, Dromina, Dysart and Mairead, daughter of John and Margaret Murphy from Tulla.  Fr. Damian Nolan was celebrant and Bestman was Alan Ryan, while the Groomsmen were Oliver and Micheal Callinan and Darragh Hynes.  Matron of Honour was Fiona Rouine and Bridesmaids were Fiona Burke, Anna O'Connor, Aisling Rouine and Emer Murphy.  Shane Callinan was Pageboy and flowergirls were Katie and Lily Murphy. The reception was held in Bunratty Castle Hotel.
