Graveyard Extension.
Plans for an extension to the graveyard in Ruan have been lodged with Clare County for the past few months.  The Council has asked for an Archaeologist’s report and a percolation report, both of which have been furnished to the Council and the local Parish Council is awaiting a response.

Camogie Helping Hands.
The local Camogie Club members would like it to be made known that they are on hand to offer help to elderly or vulnerable people in the community, who may have difficulty getting shopping, medicine, fuel, during the latest restrictions. 
People may contact the Club through the Ruan Camogie Facebook Page or call Rebecca Crowe @0870638554 or Rebecca O’Donoghue @0862489941. All H.S.E. guidelines will be followed.

Welcome for Lambs.
It used to be the case that lambs were one of the signs that spring was on the way - however, that is not the case anymore. A number of farmers have had sheep lambing in recent weeks, more to do with the market than climate change, and it is the good to see that, even in a pandemic, life continues, bringing hope for the future.

Schools Closed.
The children of Ruan school are ‘homeschooling’ during these latest Covid restrictions. Each child in the school had a bag of books collected from the school on Monday, January 11. Homework is sent through an App and the child can send back their work to be corrected, ensuring they will keep some connection with school.
