Moyvane G.A.A. social was held on Friday night in the Lanterns. It was a very enjoyable night. Chairman Paddy Mulvihill welcomed eveybody and wished all involved in the club a very enjoyable and successful year. A presentation was made to Denis O’Connor for his tremendous contribution to the club especially as chairman during the last five years. Sean Shine and Michael O’Sullivan also received presentations as a token for their commitment during the last number of years. Special guest Darragh O’Cinnede presented medals to our winning junior and senior teams and later was the recipient of a momento presented by our president Gerry Brosnan. All in all the social was a great success and fully enjoyed by everybody.

Moyvane were defeated by Ballyduff in the North Kerry junior championship on Sunday last. While Ballyduff were much stronger our lads really played with tremendous spirit and pushed them all the way. The crucial score came mid-way though the first half in the shape of a goal by Ballyduff’s Liam Ross. Try as Moyvane might they just could not make the vital breakthrough and the final score was Ballyduff 1-6, Moyvane 0-5. Well done to our lads for a great effort and we can look forward to a very enjoyable future.

Bord na nOg: Moyvane Bord na nOg will hold their A.G.M. this Saturday night at the Marian Hall at 8.30pm.
