Moyvane/Clounmacon Ladies Football:
Moyvane/Clounmacon ladies played John Mitchels in the second round of the AXA Insurance Division 4B league last Sunday, March 4th. This was an away game so the victory was sweet on a day where all four seasons came in to play. The first half was a real battle with the elements, but the girls, Aisling O’Carroll, Grainne Martin & Evelyn Stack playing against a strong breeze did a great job. A vital goal from Samantha Martin and a point from Ciara Gormley kept Moyvane/Clounmacon in touch with a half time scoreline of 1-1 to 1-4 in favour of Mitchels.Two minutes into the second half Mitchels banged in a goal. This seemed to galvinise the local girls and there was no looking back when the goals came, and they were great goals from Aileen Kennelly, Ashley Sheehy and one from centre back Evelyn Stack. This was a great win for the team and management. Final score Moyvane/Clounmacon 5-2 John Mitchels 2-7. Team and scorers: Sorcha Stack, Sarah Breen, Karen Fitzgerald, Grainne Martin, Tricia Mulvihill, Evelyn Stack 1-0, Aisling O’Carroll, Katie Wallace, Aileen Kennelly1-0, Fiona Buckley, Aine Stack, Marguerite O’Flaherty, Samantha Martin 1-0, Ciara Gormley 1-2, Ashley Sheehy 1-0. Subs: Sheila Moore for Katie Wallace, Patricia Goulding for Fiona Buckley. Next fixture is a home game against Beale on next Sunday, March 11th, time and venue to be confirmed.

Mary O’Connell (nee O’Driscoll) of Listowel Road, Moyvane passed away last week on her eighty seventh birthday. Mary was well known in Moyvane having worked in the village for many years. A well respected lady, life was not easy for her, she lost her mother at the age of four and her husband, Joe, in his forties. She was left to bring up her four young daughters on her own. It was a pleasure to meet her in the village in the mornings. She had a great interest in everything local. Her health had deteriorated in recent years and she was in care up to her death. Sympathy to all her family, Moyvane is a poorer place for her passing. May she rest in peace.
