Have you noticed that the sign for Murhur Graveyard has diappeared? This is the third time it has happened. I find this most annoying because many people come from abroad looking for their ancestors and signs for graveyards are very important in their search. If you have any idea where the sign has gone you might just try and get it back but then it just might be in a pub in New York or somewhere else in the US. It would be interesting to know.

All the teams were out this week,starting with the u12s. They had a very competive and even match v Listowel, just losing by 4 points in the end. That is the finish of the prelimiary rounds in this competition. The u16s travelled to Abbeydorney winning on a scoreline of 6-09 to 3-06, so this is a good start to their season and they play Kerins oRahillys this Thursday in Moyvane. The u14s were at home to Castlegregory on Sunday evening and had a good sporting match, winning on a scoreline of 1-11  to 1-04. The u14s play away to Spa next Sunday. Well done to all the girls mentors and parents involved. Well done also to the 4 u12 girls who were picked for the Kerry u12 development programme Brid Stack, Kayla Mulvihill, Clodagh Musgrave and Niamh O’Carroll.

County League u14 Semi-Final, Division 7 will be played in Tarbert on Wednesday May 7th. Moyvane/Tarbert v Duagh at 7pm.

Moyvane club keeps getting better and better. The Division 3s played County in the Kerry League final in Ballyheigue, they got off to a slow start losing both Singles but came back with a bang winning both Doubles and all three Mixed for a super 5-2 win. The team was Helen Browne, Carmel Hudson, Jeanelle Griffin, Francine Collins, Kevin Kennelly captain, James Sheehan, James Flaherty and John Mulvihill. The Division 4’s played Killarney in Castleisland. They won both the Ladies Singles and Doubles but lost the Men’s doubles in a tight three setter and also the second mixed  but in convincing fashion they won first and third Mixed, another 5-2 victory. The team was Louise Behan, Krystle Crowley, Eleanor Sheehan, Timmy Noonan, Jamie Elliott, Timmy Hanrahan and Padraig Kearney. That was three League titles for the club, the Division 2s having won earlier.

The Munster League Finals were played in UL. Unfortunately the Division 2 team were unable to field a team so they couldn’t take part, but the club was ably represented by the Division 3 & 4 teams. The 4s (grade G) were first on court and they defeated Rathgormack in the Quarter Final and UL in the Semi Final and had a wonderful  4-3 win over Carrigaline in the Final. Munster League champions Division 4. Well done to Louise Behan, Krystle Crowley, Eleanor Sheehan, Timmy Noonan, Jamie Elliott, Timmy Hanrahan and Padraig Kearney and managers Dermot Keane and Carmel Hudson. The Division 3s (grade F) had a bye to the Semi Finals where they defeated Waterford and in the Final enjoyed a 4-2 win over Templemore. The team was Helen Browne, Carmel Hudson, Jeanelle Griffin, Francine Collins, Kevin Kennelly, James Sheehan, James Flaherty and John Mulvihill. Manager Pat Kearney. Both teams will now contest the All Ireland Finals in Baldoyle on Saturday, May 10. This is a wonderful achievement.

A break was taken from the courts when 45 members and friends headed to The Ballyroe Heights Hotel to join over 100 players from other clubs for the annual prizegiving Kerry Dinner Dance.
