Moyvane GAA:
North Kerry Final:
Moyvane GAA Club hosted the replay of the North Kerry Senior Football Championship Final between the holders, Listowel & Tarbert. A massive crowd turned up and did they get real value for money? A wonderful game of football, another draw, extra time, a late goal, a winning point at the death and a little bit of controversy to finish off the day. Both teams can feel proud of their performance and sportsmanship shown but in every sport there has to be a winner and a loser and Tarbert finally claimed the prize for the first time since 1990. Credit has to go to Moyvane GAA club for its efficiency. The pitch was in perfect condition, parking wasn’t a problem and the facilities provided for players, referees and the media was second to none. The village was crowded, something that rarely happens in villages now, and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We need more good days and there is no one better than the GAA to provide such days. Well done everybody.
