Fashion Evening for Missionvale.

Annette Daffy of Annette's Boutique is one of the organisers of a Fashion evening which will be held in the West County Hotel this Thurs, 27th, to raise funds for Sr. Ethel Normoyle's school extension in Missionvale, South Africa.   
Wine and refreshments will  be served at 7.00p.m., with various stands on show, prizes and surprises, a great night's entertainment is guaranteed.
Intermediate Final.
It was a disappointing finish to a gallant intermediate campaign by the Ruan hurlers, on Sunday, when, in atrocious weather conditions, they were soundly beaten by Eire Og.   The game had been rescheduled to Clarecastle, because of the wet conditions.   Eire Og dominated throughout, were sharper in front of goals and took their chances.   The loss of Darragh Roughan in the first few minutes was a big blow to the team.   
Credit is due to the panel, their mentors and their families, for the time and effort they put into their preparations throughout the year, and it is hoped that they will take from the experience they have gained in the campaign, and it will stand to them next year.
The Camogie minor semi final was played in Killenena on Sunday, Ruan and Whitegate coming out even in the end, scoring 3 goals  9 points each.   The game will be replayed at 2p.m. on Sat. 30th Oct, at a venue to be decided.
The A.G.M. of Ruan Camogie Club will be held on Tue. 8th Nov. in Ruan Community Centre.   
Due to large numbers of underage players, help would be greatly appreciated, and anyone who might have an interest in helping out in any way, 
is invited to the meeting.
Talk on Gospels.
Megan McKenna will give a talk in Ruan Community Centre on Thurs. 3rd Nov. next at 8.00p.m.   She will speak on the Scriptures, and, in particular to the Gospels of St. Mark's, which next year's Gospel Readings will be taken from.   All are welcome.
Harvest Mass.
The Harvest Mass held in Ruan on Fri. night was well attended.   It was a celebration of all that happened in the parish over the past year, with music, readings, singing and dance, reflecting the life of the parishioners.  
Farmers, students, sportspeople and various organisations in the parish were represented, in giving thanks for the year's blessings.
