Moyvane Notes – 19th November, 2006

Moyvane GAA – Seniors:
Moyvane drew with Churchill on Sunday last in the County League but the point was not enough to save us from the drop to Division 5. We needed to win to force a playoff but, in terrible conditions for football, we just could not get the vital scores. Final score was Moyvane 0-7, Churchill 1-4. That means now that we start to build again from Division 5 and get ourselves back into Division 4 as soon as possible.

Development Association:
The great achievements of the restoration of the Lime Kiln with the Environment & Heritage Award and the Tidy Towns Endeavour Award, have now been followed by a successful Village Festival. This completes a great year for all the Committee members involved in the Association.

The hosting of the 3rd Boro Buffet was a gourmet delight on the Friday night, thanks to the chef, Noreen Kennelly, members of the ICA, the Junior Committee and the Rural Social Scheme workers. Congratulations to the many Bazaar prize winners on the Saturday night – well done especially to Kieran Kiely who won the door prize. Sunday, the ever-popular Vintage Display took place with numerous exhibits and catering facilities, once again very much appreciated on the day. That night, the Queen of the Boro was held and our gratitude goes to all the Queens who participated, along with their Escorts who made it a wonderful night for all. Congratulations to the new Queen of the Boro, Aisling Flaherty – having been reared in the Village and worked in her late Nana Maggie's shop, she was a very popular winner. Thanks also to our MC, Joe Enright, our sound and lighting technicians, Marie Walsh who donated all the sash's. Music was provided by the Ceili Band and All-Ireland Champion Kieran Flavin. On the Bank Holiday Monday, the GAA organised the visit of Kieran 'Star' Donaghy and a Junior Disco followed with DJ Declan. To all those who donated spot prizes and to our many sponsors, we say "A Big Thank You".

The Festival is our main source of funding and with your support we will be able to carry out further projects to enhance the quality of life and appearance of the Village and its surrounds.

The ICA Family Fun Day is on Sunday, November 26th at the Marian Hall from 2pm to 5pm. There will be a Jumble Sale, Cake Sale, etc., games to play, food to eat and prizes to be won! Visit Santa and have your photograph taken with him. A great time guaranteed.
