Mobile Phone Coverage:
Just a reminder of the petition that is currently up and running to improve Vodafone cover in the Moyvane area. Less than two weeks into the campaign there is an amazing interest. Is it any wonder when we are being exploited by a company that provides a rubbish service. You are all complaining about the service but have you ever called the company and complained? More than likely not and that lets them off the hook. Call them, do it, complain, but in the meantime sign the petition that is in the shops. Don’t forget to add your mobile number when you sign, if you don’t it’s a waste of time. The petition will go straight to Vodafone and don’t forget they already have your number so you are not giving away any secrets.

Family Fun Day:
Here’s your date to remember, Sunday June 30th. Where? In Moyvane GAA football pitch, Con Brosnan Park from 2pm to 5pm.  This a fundraiser for Moyvane National School. A great day of events organised: Races, Bouncy Castles, BBQ, Penalty Shoot Out, Wellie Throwing and Raffles, etc. Please support this event in aid of the school. A great day to be had by all.

Ladies Football:
