Holiday in Lahinch.
A number of Senior Citizens from the parish have returned from their annual holiday in Lahinch, organised by the very capable and 'fun-providing' members of the Local Senior Citizens Club.
They enjoyed walks, good dining, entertainment and even featured on Clare FM, meeting Ger Sweeney, with Marie Clohessy winning a bicycle and Rita Crowe a trip around the Aran Islands on the show.

Lay Led Liturgies.
An information night will be held in Ruan Community Centre on Mon. 3rd July next at 8.30pm. Eucharistic Ministers, Readers, Sacristans and Choir members are all invited to attend, together with anyone else interested in being involved in the liturgy.

Ruan u12's played the 1st round in the u12 competition in Kilkishen last week, playing two games and  defeating Bodyke and Kilkishen. On Monday eve of this week they played Feakle/Killanena, winning the game, however they lost to Crusheen, both games played in very wet conditions.
Aoife Glass, representing Scoil Mhuire, Ruan, has been selected to play in the Primary game, during half time in the Munster final in Thurles

Minor Hurling.
Ruan bowed out at the semi-final stage to a very strong Eire Og side in the u14B competition recently. Ruan were the u13C Champions last year and it was a great achievement to step up to 'B' this year and progress to the semi-final.
Along the way they defeated Kilmaley, The Banner, Wolfe Tones, drew with Crusheen/Tubber and met Wolfe Tones in the quarter final, whom they defeated, in a thrilling game, after extra time.
Throughout the championship they showed great promise and the management, mentors and coaches, and the boys themselves, deserve great credit, as they improved steadily as the competition progressed.

Wedding Bells.
Gary Bell of Dromore, Ruan and  Sarah Power of Clarecastle were married in the church of Saints Peter & Paul, Clarecastle at the weekend. Celebrant was Fr. Pat Malone, assisted by Fr. Connie Kelleher and Fr. Pat O'Neill.  Bridesmaids were Gillian Lougheedy, Clodagh McAllister, Niamh Kennelly and Joan McCarthy. Best man was Alan Bell and groomsmen were Damian Brohan, Damian O'Reilly and Nigel Desmond.
Flower girl was Neasa McInerney and Pageboys were Ross McInerney, Nathan Lougheedy and Aidan McAllister.
The reception was held in The Falls Hotel, Ennistymon.
