Graveyard Book Launched.
 
Glorious sunshine meant that the launch of the book "Transcriptions of Gravestones in Ruan Old Cemetery and The Coille" could be held "al fresco" in the grounds of Ruan Community Centre on Sunday last, where a large crowd had gathered for the launch.   Joe Arkins, Mayor of Clare, praised the work of Frances O'Halloran and Linda Hogan, who have been working on the project since Jan 2012.   It is an invaluable recording of information on each gravestone in the old Graveyard, complete with photographs and a map outlining where each grave is located, and will be of huge assistance to anybody looking for information on families who have been buried there, long into the future.   Many of the memorials in the old graveyard date back to the 17th and 18th century, and are fast becoming illegible. There are still copies of the book available and when they are sold, all the information will be put online.   Anyone who might have further information on any grave in the book, or who can add anything, is welcome to contact either Linda at 0868748845 or Frances at 0876575578.
