MOYVANE VILLAGE  FESTIVAL took place over the October Bank holiday weekend. This was a very special occasion, thirty years of entertainment and celebration, a milestone whatever way you look at it, with a full programme of events. Moyvane GAA co-hosted the weekend with Moyvane Development Association. Opening night was a very special event ‘John Moriarty, Grounded in Story’ in the Marian Hall. This evening of storytelling featured Martin Shaw, an international storyteller and author, along with Gabriel Fitzmaurice, Mary McGillicuddy, and Amanda Carmody, sharing stories about John Moriarty, late of Ahalahana. On Saturday an exhibition match between The Palatine GAA Club from Carlow and our local team proved a very enjoyable event for both the visitors and the home team. Thanks to all those who came along to support the teams. Saturday night’s Community Celebration night was postponed. Sunday was a busy day with various activities taking place. The Vintage was held in the Community Sports Hall car park, while the annual dog show and kiddies tractor run took place in the Church car park. All events were well attended and took place in lovely weather.  On Sunday night The Rattlin’ Rogues took to the stage in the beautifully draped Community Sports Hall around 9.00pm and were followed by DJ Ray Stack. The night was a huge success and was enjoyed by all the huge crowd who attended. Monday morning saw an Underage Blitz take place. The North Kerry Harriers Hunt left the village around midday with over 50 horses taking part. The return of the Trail of Horror this year proved to be a huge success.

THOSE WE’VE LOST A while ago Nodie Brosnan peacefully passed away at her home in the village. She was one of a kind, a hard-working lady who fed half the parish of Moyvane during her lifetime, and indeed it wasn’t a bother to her. Cancer visited her more than forty years ago but being Nodie it never defined her and never stopped her from doing the things she wanted to do or going to the places she wanted to visit, Medjugorje being her favourite place. She was a woman of faith, truly genuine faith, there was no pretense about it. The house is now vacant and it is sad to look in and see that the kitchen is closed, a kitchen that always had a crowd inside the window discussing all things local and of course Kerry football. Time moves on, unfortunately. Sincere sympathy to all her family. Nodie I hope you are up there looking down on the parish of Moyvane and still praying for all of us who still live here.
