Book Launch - Graveyard's Headstones.
Since January, 2012, a group of local people have been working on recording all the inscriptions in the old Graveyard in Ruan and in Coille Graveyard, as many of them were becoming illegible as a result of weathering, and there was a real danger they would be lost in the very near future.    The group has now compiled a book with photos and the inscriptions of all the headstones in the two Graveyards.  Newly elected Mayor of Clare, Joe Arkins, will launch the book after Ruan's 11.15a.m. Mass on this Sunday, July 7th, in Ruan Community Centre.   All are welcome to the launch, where the book will be on sale and light refreshments will be served.
