Moyvane Notes – 11th January, 2010

Moyvane Development Association:
Due to adverse weather conditions it is with regret that the committee has decided to cancel their selection night for the Queen of the Boro which was due to take place this Saturday night, January 16th. As you are aware, this event was previously rescheduled. As it is part of their Village Festival on the October Bank Holiday weekend they are returning it to it’s original schedule. The committee regrets disappointing the Queens and their Escorts and would like to thank them for their interest and patience but their safety and well being and the safety and well being of their supporters must come first. You can all look forward to October 2010.

Apologies once again for having no Bingo last week. This week we are waiting to see what the weather does before we make a decision. Radio Kerry will fill you in on Thursday.


Weather Conditions:
Due to the adverse weather conditions, your assistance is requested in checking on neighbours and people who are isolated in your area, particularly those who live alone.

If a house is inaccessible due to road conditions and there is a genuine emergency please contact the local Garda Station.
