    Hello again from Tallaght.

    I would just like to say “well done” to the Moyvane GAA who put forward a motion calling for the amendment of rule 42, which passed through the county board convention and the dreaded “motions committee” to be heard on the floor of the national congress in April.

    It is with enormous pride that I announce to all and Sundry up here that my home village is responsible for such a visionary, ground-breaking and entirely correct motion. I back the motion 100% with everything in my being and I look forward to the day when I am in Croke Park, watching an international soccer or rugby fixture, glowing with pride that Moyvane played such a significant part in it all.

    How wonderful will it be to welcome people from all over the world to this fantastic staduim, to watch them gaze in wonder at what this amateur organisation accomplished. The GAA is by far and away the best organisation in this country. It is now time to take our rightful place on the world stage.

    Let’s get this motion through congress. Keep fighting the good fight!!

    Slan abhaile,

    My husband and I are hoping to move to the village soon and I was wondering if anyone had any advice for helping us settle. We currently live in the UK and want to move to Ireland. My husband is Irish although his family all live in Granard and Dublin now.

    condolences on the death of your brother Jack. I attended the removal,as did my mother Eileen and my Aunt Gretta and I can testify that there was a massive turn-out, a fitting tribute to Jack.I am distantly related to you being the grandson of Jimmy Lynch of Clahane Tralee, previously of Knockanure. I now live in Listowel, 24 Woodview, Cahirdown.The last time I saw Jack , God Rest his Soul, he said that he would introduce me to a local man who knew all the old tales about Parnell Lynch etc etc-if you know who he had in mind feel free to give me a ring on 068-24547.
    Once again sincere condolences to all your family from the Clahane (Tralee) Lynches

    A beautiful Web site. Thank you for the last few hours of joy spent scrolling through all the photos and remembering so many names I’ve heard from my mom. Her name was Ellen Dore, daughter of Michael and Hannah Dore. The names that were familiar were Stack, Mulvihill (her sister Mary), and Nolan. The last time I was in Moyvane was 1968 and there was a festival with the Rose of Tralee in attendance. What fun I had visiting my grandad, uncle Mike, wife Sissy, Aunt Mary, and all of my cousins with my mom, brother Mike, and my son Robert–who was 16 months old at the time and now 38–a long time ago. I now have five grown children and 7 grandchildren (#8 is on its way). Time flies, but the village still looks beautiful. Thank you again.

    I am trying to locate any members of the Flaherty family from the Newtownsandes/Knockanure area. My grandmother was Mary Ann (Molly) who immigrated to America in the early 1900s along with several sisters.Catherine,Nora,Madge,Nanna. She married John J O’Brien from Claire and all settled eventually in the Kansas City, Missouri area, but Nora Flaherty returned to Ireland. She exchanged letters for several years, until around 1971 when my mother (now 87) lost contact with her. I think there was a brother William, but no children of Nora’s that I know of.The remaining child of Molly (Aunt Anna) is now 84 and would love to know about some family members from this branch of Flahertys.She was never able to make the trip to Ireland but my parents visited and so did I.If anyone who reads this knows members of that particular Flaherty family I would really like to let my aunt know. Her health is not very good these days and this would be a great boost to her. Thank you to anyone who replies.
