Moyvane Bingo:
Moyvane Bingo has gone from strength to strength. Crowds are bigger than last year and as a result prize money has gone up also. You can Spin the Wheel any week and win up to €2,000, you can win on all three panels with the Lucky Line €75, €100 and €150, and then there are the regular ten games on your Bingo book. Last week €2,715 was won. Please support your local Bingo, you are all welcome.

Moyvane Development Association:
The next Tidy Towns clean up will be held this Wednesday evening at 8pm. We would ask you all to be extra vigilant over the next couple of months as judging can take place at any time during June & July and the judges do not announce their arrival, they just come quietly and leave even more quietly. You can help in many ways, by turning up for clean ups, organising a clean up with your neighbours on your road or in your housing development. Be extra vigilant of litter, watch out for cigarette ends etc. outside homes or business premises. All ideas that will help improve the appearance of the village are welcome by committee members. Please keep up your efforts throughout the year.
