Tidy Towns.
Ruan earned 330 marks in this year’s Tidy Towns Competition, up six marks since 2019, bringing Ruan to third place in its category. Senan Coughlan, who heads up the Rural Resource Group which works tirelessly throughout the year, submitted the application, and credit must go to him, the group and all the volunteers who help keep the village and its environs green and tidy, and it is hoped that, next year, with a little more help, it might even top this category.

The Junior A team took on Broadford on Saturday in the Championship final, however, despite putting in a brave performance, Ruan lost out on the tightest of margins. The team has had a great season up to this point and has grown together as a group and it is hoped the girls will bounce back and look forward to the new season.
The u18’s will play in the Shield final against Kilmaley on Saturday, venue to be decided, so supporters are asked to keep an eye on Facebook as the week goes on and it is hoped the community will come out to support them.

Toonagh Winter Tractor Run.
A tractor run will be held on Sunday, November 28, to raise funds for Toonagh Hall and Sports Complex. All tractors, trucks, vintage cars and motorbikes are welcome to take part.
The A.G.M. of the Complex will take place on Monday, Nov. 29, at 8pm and the committee would appreciate it if people who are interested in the facility which is so important to the community would attend.​ The committee is looking for someone to fill the role of treasurer and Catherine Douglas @0831483015 has details for anyone interested.

Christmas Food Appeal.
This appeal was hugely successful last Christmas and it is hoped it will be the same this year. The local XL Shop in Ruan is one of the participants and people are asked to donate non-perishable items (tea, sugar, tinned foods, cereals, rice, pasta, jam, biscuits, sweets) which will then be distributed to families in need in the Imeall Boirne Cluster over the coming weeks.
