Moyvane Notes – 15th October, 2006

Moyvane GAA – Seniors:
Moyvane play Na Gaeil in the final of the County Novice Championship on Sunday next in Austin Stack Park, Tralee at 2pm. This is a very important game for our club and we wish the lads the very best of luck in the game on Sunday. The game forms part of a double header with the County Senior Championship semi-final between Dr. Crokes & Mid-Kerry.

Dressing Rooms:
Work is progressing in the new dressing rooms, so again we ask people to be careful around the area and take notice of the warning signs. Thank you again for your co-operation.

Golden Jubilee:
The following donations were made to the Church 50yrs ago:
  • High Altar was donated by the Kissane brothers, Fr. Maurice & Fr. Edmond who were born in Leitrim East.
  • Altar of the Blessed Virgin was donated by the relatives of the late Michael Keane who was P.P. in Moyvane at an earlier date.
  • Sacred Heard Altar was donated by Fr. Jimmy & Fr. Pat Cunningham of the village.
  • Sanctuary Lamp was donated by Dr. Michael Brosnan, London (brother of Con Brosnan).
  • Gold colour vestments were donated by the teachers of the parish.
