Cardiac De-febrillator.
There is an AED (de-fibrillator) located outside Fr. Pat O'Neill's house in Ruan.   The local G.A.A. Club has provided training for 30 first-aiders in its use and there is now an alert system in place which means that, in the event of a cardiac incident, the public can summon help from a trained first aider, by phoning a designated number which is 0656710171.   
This number should  be known by everyone in the parish, as, when it is called, the first aid team is alerted and one of the team will provide assistance.   The general "rule of thumb" in a cardiac incident in the Ruan area is - firstly call an ambulance and secondly call 0656710171.
World Dancing Championships.
Sisters, Ailbhe and Aoife Bane from Ballygriffey, Ruan, have just returned from taking part in the World Irish Dancing Championships which were held in Boston recently.   The competitions were highly competitive - world class - and the girls acquitted themselves very well.   
They danced with the top Irish dancers in the world and they enjoyed the whole experience of travelling and meeting up with so many traditional Irish dancing enthusiasts.   
The family was bowled over with the amount of cards, good wishes and support the girls received on the run up to the event, however,  it's practice as usual now that they've returned - with the Irish National Championships coming up in May at the City West Hotel in Dublin.

The Junior team has commenced its season having played two games recently.   In the first game of the league, the girls were defeated by neighbouring Corofin, and they had a well deserved win against Bodyke last Sunday in Ruan pitch.
Training for u6 to u14 has commenced on Wednesday evenings from 6.30p.m. in Ruan.
