The Kerry branch of the National Council for the Blind wish to thank the collectors and very generous subscribers to its recent Church Gate Collection. The amount collected was Moyvane €579.04, Knockanure €157.65.

Moyvane GAA – Juniors:
Moyvane play Beale in the semi-final of the Junior League on Friday night in Listowel at 7.30pm. The reason for the earlier start is that there will be extra time in the event of draw. The very best of luck to the lads and we hope they can get the right result.

Our minors have completed their North Kerry League programme and we did not qualify for the closing stages. Their next game will be in the Championship.

Good Luck:
Good luck to Jack O'Connor and his team on Saturday evening against Longford in Killarney. Also the very best of luck to local player, Patrick Curtin, and his Kerry minor team-mates on Sunday next in Ennis in the All-Ireland Quarter Final.
