Moyvane Notes – 31st October 2021

MOYVANE DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION  VILLAGE FESTIVAL 2021 The Association would like to thank all of you who came out and contributed to the community atmosphere for the festivities which took place on Sunday October 24 as part of the Village festival. The Vintage Tractor and Car Run was a great success with 40 tractors and 20 cars taking part. It was lovely to see people out and about enjoying themselves on a beautiful day. Sunday also saw a very welcome return of the hugely popular Festival Fun Dog Show very generously sponsored by Betty and Jim Halpin of “Aughrim Mountain View Pet Hotel”. Categories included the ‘waggiest tail’, ‘best costume’ and ‘cutest puppy’. Thanks also to Betty & Jim for judging on the day, no easy job. While rosettes were presented to 1first, second and third in eight categories, the winner of the overall cup on the day was “Teddy” owned by Sean and Deborah Mahoney. The Kiddies Tractor Run also took place on Sunday in the Church Car Park and great fun was enjoyed by all. All participants received medals for their efforts. The Fun Run/Walk scheduled for Bank Holiday Monday was postponed and a new date will be announced soon. The Hunt was rescheduled to last Sunday October 31. Moyvane Development Association would like to thank Fr. Brendan and the Community Sports Hall Committee who kindly allowed us to use the two car parks on the day. Thanks to all who contributed to the bucket collection for local development activities and the Fuschia Dementia Centre in Listowel. Finally, we would like to thank all sponsors of the Festival Weekend. Your generosity helps fund  activities around the village throughout the year.

5 YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLAN:  Knockanure/Moyvane Area Profile: Brendan O’Caoimh, a member of our development plan facilitation team, recently put together a fascinating area profile of the Knockanure and Moyvane areas. The purpose of the area profile is to provide evidence and data that will help us to develop our community-led 5-year development plan. The profile gives real insight into our community and is a must-watch! Check out the video using this link: To download the slides, use this link: Keep an eye out on social media and local media for details of further development meetings on the way where we will be delving further into the area profile. Your support is appreciated.

Pat & Bridie Scanlon, Listowel on the death of their son, Padraig, the Stackpoole family, Athea and Moyvane on the death of Jack, Lower Athea, Co. Limerick and Breda Scanlon (nee Hanrahan, Kilbaha, Moyvane) and her family on the passing of her husband Martin. May they all find peace and rest. At a funeral recently I was amazed to see so many people shaking hands with the mourners in the graveyard. Please respect the protocol and keep yourself and everybody else safe. Families who are bereaved certainly do not need their lives complicated any further.
