Ruan Tidy Towns.
Ruan has progressed every year since it has taken part in the Tidy Towns Competition, this year it was awarded 299 points, up 7 points on last year, and was placed second in the county in its particular category.
It is a great credit to all who contribute to the enhancement of the area, and particularly to the Rural Resource Group which works tirelessly, keeping all areas with which it is involved, in fine condition.

Camogie Blitz.
A large crowd of underage girls, with parents and mentors, converged on Ruan  G.A.A. Field on Sun. morning last.
The Burren Club had three teams taking part and they played Ruan , in both clubs' end of season event.
Refreshments were served and  the support of all who helped out on the day is deeply appreciated by the club.

Around seventy riders took part in a pre-season run, organised by the Co. Clare Hounds, over the fields around Ruan on Sun. last, with experienced riders introducing young enthusiasts to the pleasures of hunting.
The weather couldn't hav
e suited them better and all enjoyed the day's outing.

Rugby World Cup.
A number of rugby followers from the parish have, over the past few weeks, travelled to England to support Ireland's efforts on their World Cup journey.
They witnessed four great wins for the team and took in sightseeing and shopping on their trip, and joined with the rest of the country on Sunday hoping for a win, which was not to be, however, they have great memories of the build up to yesterday's game.
