GAA Under-21: Moyvane were defeated by Beale in the North Kerry championship on Sunday last in Ballybunion. This was a very close encounter with little between them all through. It was only in the very last attack that Beale secured their win with well taken points to put them into the next round. Moyvane had their chances in the first half but did not put up enough scores. Well done to all involved and maybe we can go one better next year.

Disco – Moyvane under-14 victorious in the North Kerry league will receive their medals on Monday (Bank Holiday) at the disco which will be held in the Community Centre. Let’s hope that all our players will turn up on the night. Refreshments will be served and we hope that everyone will have good time.

Blotto – The blotto is going well but we are still asking all our sellers to keep the effort up as we have a major development coming up in the next couple of months. Once again thanks to everybody who support us, it is very much appreciated.
