North Kerry Final:
Moyvane are hosting the North Kerry Senior Championship Final again this year, which will be played on St. Stephen's Day. We will again be calling on our dedicated and reliable workers to help us through the event. It should be a big day in the village and, again, we are very proud of our facilities. On behalf of the club, I wish all our supporters, players and patrons a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.

Our GAA Lotto will be held on Saturday night in Brosnan's this week, due to Christmas Eve falling on the Sunday. We wish to thank everybody for supporting our weekly Lotto and best of luck in the draws.
