Seniors: Moyvane played out an exciting draw with Tousist in the County league last Saturday night. Moyvane were unlucky not to hold out as we led by a few points nearing the end. However a vital point was secured and keeps our unbeaten start to the year going. Final score was 1 – 9 each. Next weekend Moyvane could be in North Kerry league action or Novice County championship.

Juniors: Moyvane had a great win over Emmets in the North Kerry league last Tuesday. This win should put them into the semi-final. They will be played next week.

Minors: Moyvane lost to Gaeltacht in the final of the County league last Sunday night. This was a very entertaining game and at times we looked like that we might take it. Our lads gave their very best but the stronger Gaeltacht lads were always able to get those vital points. Great credit was due to Kieran Stack and his team for the effort put into this campaign and with players like Aiden and Tom Keane Mark Hanrahan Cal and Damien Flynn Donal Enright D.J.Keane and outstanding goalkeeper Diarmuid Fitzmaurice better days are ahead for this team. Final score Gaeltacht 0 – 14, Moyvane 0 – 9.
