We expect pipelaying works within Moyvane to have a duration of 6 weeks and traffic management will be via a traffic light controlled shuttle system. The works will include 4no directional drills which will minimise the excavation within the village. There are no planned outages during these works. We appreciate your forbearance during these works and Murphy/GMC will endeavour to minimise disruption to local residents during these works.

The 25th Village Festival will take place over the October Bank Holiday weekend…including a Rambling House in the Marian Hall, the 14th Boro Buffet which will be held this year in the Community Centre, but not the Community Centre as you see it every day. It will be specially dressed up for the ocassion with drapes and lights and much more, an occasion not to be missed. On Sunday Night the Festival will hold its first Barn Dance. Sunday also hosts its first Family Fun Day. Watch this space over next few weeks for more details!!

All positions are filled on the committee for this year following the AGM. All parents, coaches and managers who would like to get involved at any level are invited to attend an open meeting in the Marian Hall on Monday night, October 9th at 8pm. This year Boys Badminton, u10 mixed GAA, and u15 Futsal  were all bronze medallists in Kerry. The u13 Girls Indoor Soccer team and u8 Sprinter won Gold in Kerry and represented the club in the National Finals in Dublin. More coaches and managers are needed to maintain this success, parents are invited to become involved also. There are many other activities that your children could compete in such as art, handwriting, singing and music, swimming and there’s an u14 quiz but it needs adults to help organize things. Please try to attend or contact one of the committee if you would like to help. Thank you. Brigitte Hogan secretary.
