I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. Hope the year gone by has been kind to you. Welcome to those of you you have travelled home to be with your families. May you all have a wonderful Christmas. It’s great to see the positive attitude of the various organisations who made the effort to decorate the village and to Fr. Kevin.

It gets better. Last Saturday night at the Hilton Airport Hotel, Dublin, the results of the Badminton Club of the Year was announced and guess who won? Moyvane Badminton Club. Three clubs were shortlisted, Moyvane, Oranmore, Galway and Fair Play Club, Dublin. This is a huge achievement considering there are almost 300 clubs in the country. The city clubs, particulaily Dublin clubs, have a massive advantage over the clubs down the country. They have the best of coaching at their fingertips and travel is not a problem. Winning the Division 2, 3 & 4 Leagues in Kerry the teams went on to win Munster and they capped it all by winning the All Ireland in Dublin last May but now Moyvane are top of the pile. Say it again, CLUB OF THE YEAR. Well done, you have done Moyvane proud.
