St. Mary's Church Centenary.
On Sunday 24th July, the Centenary of the opening of St. Mary's Church will be celebrated in Ruan, when Bishop Kieran O'Reilly will celebrate Mass in the refurbished and repainted Church.   Families who have members living outside of the parish, and, indeed outside of the Country, are asked to invite them back home for this special occasion when the community will celebrate the significance of the Church in their lives.
Coffee Morning.
A Coffee morning will be held in Toonagh Hall on Thurs. 23rd June from 10a.m. to 12 noon, to raise funds for the Clare Crusaders Clinic in Barefield.   The Clinic offers free services to children with special needs - cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autism, language delay, downs syndrome - such as speech and language and occupations therepy, physio, reflexology.   They also run a pre-school for children with special needs.   As the Centre receives no State assistance, it depends on the generosity of the community, and the families of the children who use it, so the organisers of the Coffee morning will welcome the support of the local community.
G.A.A. Hoodies.
Ruan G.A.A. Club hoodies will become available shortly in childrens and adults sizes , from the local Club.

Conrad's a Winner.
Local athlete, Conrad McCullough, from Dysart, won the 100m and 200m and came 2nd in the Long Jump in the Munster Athletics of the Special Olympics.   These competitions were held in Cork at the weekend.
Show Goes On.
The Gymkhana and Vintage Show went ahead on Sunday, in Ruan, despite the appaling weather on the day.   It was a case of "braving the elements" for those who turned up and it was no wonder that the numbers were way down on previous years as the rain poured down all day.   
The organisers will just pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and hope for a better outcome next year!!
