Minor Hurling Club.
After a very successful winter's training programme, which large numbers of children have been attending, outdoor training has resumed in Ruan hurling field for u10s and u12s on Wed. evenings from 7p.m. to 8p.m. and for u6s and u8s on Thurs. 11th April from 6.30p.m. to 7.30p.m.
Ruan Spring Clean.
A "Spring litter pick" will be held in Ruan this Thurs. eve. 4th April at 7 o'clock, meeting at Morty Kelly's.  It is hoped this will  be a fun evening for young and old to come together to work towards making the village a better place to live.  
Light refreshments will be served afterwards and the support of the community will be much appreciated.
Ruan Dramatic Society.
Following on the success of their latest production, John B. Keane's play, "The Highest House on the Mountain" which played to a full house in Ruan Community Centre over the Easter weekend, Ruan Dramatic Society will hold its A.G.M. in the Community Centre on Mon. next, 8th April at 9.00p.m.  Anyone interested in joining the group in any capacity, on stage or backstage or front of house, is welcome to come along.
Ageing with Confidence Course.
This course, which was to run in Ruan Community Centre, has been deferred, due to the unavailability of one of the facilitators.  
It is hoped it will go ahead in the near future.

Apostolic Works Display.
The Apostolic Works Society is holding its annual display of work in Ruan Community Centre on Sunday next, 7th April, from 11.45 to 5.00p.m.  
All proceeds will go to the many Mission projects which the Society supports and the support of the community is very much appreciated.

Graveyard Survey.
A survey and map of the old Graveyard in Ruan has recently been completed.   It highlights the fact that there is quite a bit of ground available for future burials.   The map, and a list of families associated with each plot is displayed at the back of Ruan Church and people are asked to take a little time to check that their family plot is correctly recorded.   Help in  identifying unmarked graves would also be much appreciated, as would any other comments or corrections, and Fr. Pat O'Neill, Frances O'Halloran or Linda Hogan may be contacted in that respect.  
Full inscriptions on all headstones have been recorded and photographed, and will be available in book form shortly.
Local History Group.
Francis Whelan from the Kilnaboy Local History Group will address the meeting of the Ruan Local History Group on Wed. 10th April, in Morty Kelly's at 8.30p.m.  There has been a great response to the work this group has done in the parish, and it has generated a lot of interest in people for the history of their localities.
