Moyvane Tidy Towns/Development, for Moyvane Village, all the hard work has paid off as they have been awarded best new entry in the Southern region, in this our first entry in the Tidy Towns competition.

The extension of a further kilometre to the village nature trail along the back of the community centre and sportsfield is almost complete except for the placement of fencing along the walk. The completion of the trail has led to a place in the ESB CBI final which will be held in Dublin on September 25.

Moyvane senior footballers should now be safe in the county league and can concentrate on the North Kerry championship. It will be a few weeks before we have a game as once again we received a bye in the first round. However the squad are in training and we hope we can get a few challenge games to keep them in shape.

The juniors were beaten by Beaufort in the Barrett Cup after a very good game in Moyvane. The loss of key players to the Intermediate championship was a big problem but in fairness they put up a great battle and only late goals saw us out. Final score Moyvane 1 – 5, Beaufort 4 – 5. We are still in the North Kerry Intermediate championship where we play Brosna in the semi-final.

Moyvane U-14 were defeated by Finuge in the semi-final of the championship after a very close game. That just about wraps up their year which was a very successful one as they won the Division two of the North Kerry league.

It is intended to run the race night on the Thursday night of the Listowel Races.
