We have a serious problem with all roads south of  Moyvane at the moment. It seems the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing and there is no communication whatsoever with the locals. The Coilagurteen road has been closed for the last few weeks and last Thursday the Knockanure road was closed without warning and is supposed to be closed for EIGHT WEEKS. It is a nightmare for school buses now that the schools have reopened and trying to get to Knockanure, Athea or Abbeyfeale adds many miles to your journey. Heavy traffic is travelling on roads that are barely fit for cars. The signage is ridiculous. There are signs saying some roads are closed when they are open and no signs on other roads that are closed. To complicate things when the closed roads reopen they forget to remove the signs so you don’t know if you should believe the signs or not. We are going to have to live with this for the next couple of years because Gas Networks Ireland and ESB Networks are both passing through the village. To both companies I would say show a bit of respect for the residents and please make sure you leave us with roads that are fit for purpose.

SCL: Con Brosnan Park was the venue for the final round of the County football league, where Moyvane faced Cromane. Kerry star Donnacha Walsh was the first to get his name of the score sheet, kicking a glorious point from play. This was quicky followed by a point from Moyvanes nifty corner forward, Colin Enright. There wasn’t much between the two teams in the opening 20 minutes. Sean O’Sullivan popped over a point from play, again followed by a point from Colin Enright. A bit of hassle between full back Shane Stack and full forward Sean O’Sulivan, saw both receive yellow cards. Aidan Keane, the winner of a free secured another score for the home team, but a goal from Cromane’s Shane Ahern saw them edge into the lead going in at half time, with a score of 0-5 to Moyvane 1-8 to Cromane. Darren Houlihan scored the first 2 opening scores of the second half, one from play the other a 45. A long high ball in from Moyvane’s Brian Stack saw the back of the net which gave Moyvane a great boost. They fought hard right to the bitter end, but again Donnacha Walsh proved hard to beat and he scored a further 2 points with Mikey Houlihan getting his name on the score sheet also. Final score was Moyvane 1-7 Cromane 1-13.Scorers: Moyvane; Colin Enright 0-3 Brian Stack 1-0 Donie Stack 0-2 Aidan Keane 0-1 Timmy Noonan 0-1 Crommane; Donnahca Walsh 0-3 Mikey Houlihan 0-1 Darren Houlihan 0-3 Paul O’Sulivan 0-2 Sean O’Sullivan 0-2 Shane Ahern 1-1 Finbarr Casey 0-1

In the last two weeks Upper Aughrim & Glenalappa lost two of their senior citizens and one not so senior. John (Jack Martin), Mulvihill, Glenalappa,  died at his home surrounded by his wife and family. Jack celebrated his 87th birthday the weekend before his death. He was a very sociable man. The highlight of his week was his trip to Listowel every Mart day and his visit to John B’s for a toisin and a chat with Billy. This had been routine for many years. Jack is survived his wife Ann, sons Martin, Roger and Johnny, daughters Catherine and Breda, brother Martin (USA), daughters-in-law Hilary and Lily, sons-in-law Kevin and Michael and 11 grandchildren, sisters-in-law, nephews and nieces. Requiem Mass for Jack Martin Mulvihill was celebrated at the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane with burial afterwards in Murhur Cemetery. Pat Mulvihill of Upper Aughrim was in his 90th year when he died last week. Another gentleman Pat is last of his family and is survived by his nieces, nephews, and cousins. Requiem Mass for Pat was celebrated on Tuesday, August 29th  in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane with burial afterwards in Murhur Cemetery. Vincent Walsh of Upper Aughrim and Ballylongford also passed away last week. Vincent was in his late sixties. Sympathy to all their families. May they rest in peace.
