Ruan GAA: 

Under 10s Trip to TippOn Sunday Oct 8 our Under 10s took part in a very competitive hurling tournament in Cappawhite GAA Club Co. Tipperary. We were delighted to be asked to attend and represent Clare. The boys played great hurling on the day. Ruan were unlucky not to reach the 'A' final, we were beaten a point in the 'A' semi-final and as a result qualified for the 'B' final where we defeated the host club Cappawhite.

The most important thing though was that each boy present got to play loads of hurling and everyone got game time. The focus for Ruan was on participation. We also had an Under 9 team which did very well and played against Cappawhite (Tipperary), Murroe Boher (Limerick) and Harps (Laois).

In total 27 boys played hurling for Ruan in Tipperary.

Thought for the Week:


'Every moment and every event of everyone's life on earth
Plants something in their soul'      (Thomas Merton)

 

Road Safety Awareness: Bishop Fintan has urged all road users to take extra care on the road this October Bank Holiday weekend. He says: “Road safety awareness is the parable of the Good Samaritan in action within our communities today.  I am thinking here of all road users: motorists, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians, and we all have a role in helping each other even if we do not know one another personally. I firmly believe that prayer and reflection can change our driving behaviour, calm our aggression, remind us of the spiritual, moral and physical importance of what we are about to do. In this context I recommend the following dedicated prayers for motorist which can be said before driving.”


 

 

17th century paidir as Gaeilge

 

In ainm an Athar le bua,

In ainm an Mhic a d’fhulaing an phian,

In ainm an Spiorad Naoimh le neart,

Muire is a Mac linn inár dtriall. Áiméan!

 

 

A contemporary prayer in the English language:

 

Holy Mother, hear our prayer,

Keep us in your loving care,

Whatever the perils of the way,

Let us not add to them this day.

So to our caution and attention,

We add a prayer for your protection,

To beg God’s blessing on this car,

To travel safely near and far.

Amen.
