Moyvane Notes – 3rd June, 2009

At last the sun has decided to shine and not before time. This has been a dreadful year for everybody but particularly for farming, coming after two bad years. Apart from being out for a few weeks, most cows have been indoors since last August. There are no reserves of feed in the country and much of next year’s feed has already been eaten, either by grazing or cutting grass to feed animals. This is a very serious situation so hopefully this good weather will remain with us for many months.

There was no winner of the €6,000 Jackpot last Thursday night. The numbers drawn were 20   22   24   27. Lucky Dips: €100 Molly, Xpress Stop, Moyvane. €50 Marian & Edel Quinn, Woodgrove, Moyvane. €20 each: Ann Joy, Gortnaminch. Breda Stack, c/o Nora Fitz. Lisia O’Connor, Woodview Place, Tarbert. M.
