MOYVANE NOTES 10/11/2021


Moyvane Development Association are holding the 2nd Community Development workshop on Tuesday, November 16 at 8.00pm (sharp) in the Community Sports Hall. The workshop setting is very social, relaxed and is mostly about sharing ideas. There is no need to be worried about getting a job! These workshops are about building for our future in Moyvane & Knockanure so please come along and get involved. Any ideas are warmly welcomed. We are also encouraging as many as possible to complete a survey regarding future development which we have shared to different groups within the locality. Furthermore we encourage everyone to share this survey link with anyone who may not have received it. If anyone in our community or diaspora wants to receive it, it can be forwarded by emailing [email protected]or messaging 087 6761353. Hopefully see as many as possible at the next meeting!

MOYVANE DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION wishes to acknowledge receipt of the following grant allocations from KCC: €2,500 from the Community Support Fund, which was used to part fund the upgrade of the flower beds on Church Road and €1,000 from the Community Enhancement Programme which was used to purchase a mulcher lawn mower. Reminder: please take our Community Development Plan online survey if you haven’t already done so. This survey will provide valuable feedback, in addition to our upcoming community meetings. We want to hear from you! Take 5 minutes this week to have your say.

SYMPATHY: Once again we have lost some members of our community. On Thursday, November 21, Micheal Fitzmaurice passed away at his home in Aughrim. Until his retirement Micheal worked in the E.S.B. power station in Tarbert Island. A quiet man, his interests were GAA and hunting with his dogs. Like all the Fitzmaurice family he was a regular in Croke Park over the years and was a huge supporter of Moyvane and Kerry football. He inherited the love of hunting from his father and covered much of the fields in the parish of Moyvane. Micheal has gone to join his parents, Edward & Kit, sister Bridie, brothers, James and Jerry and nephew Hughie. He is survived by his wife Eileen, daughter Bridget, sons Gerard and Kieran, grandchildren Jack, Annie Kate, Abban, Abban, Rian and Eve, sisters Christina and Ann, brothers Sean, Brendan, Eamon and Jody. Rest easy Micheal, you were a gentleman. The death took place of Sr. Margarite (Dora) Windle, Sisters of Charity, Epsom, Surrey, England and late of Leitrim East, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Peacefully, on October 19. Predeceased by her parents Paddy and Margaret, brothers Pat, Maurice and Tom. Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her sisters Sr. Marie (Convent of Mercy) and Kathleen, brothers Mike and Dick, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, extended family and her Sister of Charity colleagues. Funeral will take place in Epsom on November 18, with a Memorial Mass for Sr. Margarite being celebrated in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane, on Saturday, November 20 at 7.30 p.m.
