Ruan School Fun Run.
Over 300 people, made up of joggers, runners and walkers, participated in the annual Fun Run for Ruan School on Thursday, May 31 last.   There was a great atmosphere among the participants, as they enjoyed the rare, brilliant evening sunshine.  The support of the local community and the work of the volunteers who helped out on the evening are greatly appreciated by the School.

Senior Citizens Holiday.
A number of Senior Citizens from the parish have just returned from their annual holiday in Lahinch. This annual holiday was organised by the local Senior Citizens Committee, the members of which  ensured that everyone enjoyed the break.  Despite the inclement weather, they got out for walks on the promenade and lunch in The Shamrock every day and returned home on Monday, refreshed and relaxed after their holiday.

Community Response Group.
Ruan / Dysart Community & GAA Club have 2 AEDs, defibrillators,  one kept at GAA Clubhouse, the other on the external wall of the Parochial House (Fr.Pats house), opposite the Church. The importance of the appropriate maintenance of these potentially life saving devices cannot be underestimated.
With this in mind it is hoped to set up a Community Response Group in the area. Anyone interested in coming on board would be very welcome.
