Community Games Athletics.
Kilnaboy hosted the community games cross country running recently.  In a very exciting race in the u13 girls, 1200m, Ruan girls came out on top, winning gold. Neasa Ni Ainifein coming first, Aisling Moloney, ninth, Neasa Ni Leachtnain, 11th, Aoife Anderson, fourteenth and Kate Forde, nineteenth.  Neasa Ni Ainifein, as overall winner, will now represent Clare at the National Finals. 
This was a great achievement for the parish, as all five girls were under age this year, giving great hope for the future.

Clothes Collection.
The recent clothes collection held for Toonagh School brought in €730, for which the Parents Association of the school is very grateful. The support of the community is very much appreciated, as these monies go towards classroom supplies for the schoolchildren.

Volunteering for Nurture Africa.
Becky Curtin, a young trainee nurse from Fountain, held a Sale of Work & Cake Sale in Toonagh Hall recently.  Funds raised will go towards her upcoming trip to Uganda with nine other trainee nurses, to help local orphaned children with healthcare.
She thanks all who baked and donated items for the fundraiser and welcomed all the support she received.

All Ireland Medal.
Local hurler with the Ruan team, Brian Roughan from Kilcurrish, Fountain was a member of the Mary Immaculate College panel which beat U. L.  in the very exciting Fitzgibbon Cup final recently.
One of the selectors with Mary I is Francis O'Halloran also from Ruan, and this was a great achievement for both Brian and Francis.
