On Monday night two League matches were played at home, the Division 3s played Kingdom and enjoyed a 7-0 win. The team was Helen Browne, Carmel Hudson, Francine Collins, Jeanelle Griffin, James Flaherty, James Sheehan, and John Mulvihill. The Division 2 Kingdom/Moyvane team won 5-2 over Killarney. Moyvane players were Elaine Hudson, Ml. J O’Connor, Pat Kearney, and Dermot Keane. The Division 5s played their last League game on Tuesday night in Listowel. This was the decider as to which team would go into the Kerry final. Having got to that stage against all the odds they were unlucky and went down 3-4. At the beginning of the Season it looked as if Moyvane wouldn’t have a team never mind win three rounds so well done to a very dedicated bunch of players who at least have a Knockout Final to look forward to. Team was Michelle Corridan, Suzanne Keane, Fiona Casey, Brian Griffin, Oliver Carmody and Micheal Nolan. Thanks to all. On Sunday Dermot Keane won the Division 2 and 3 Final at the Annascaul Invitation Tournament and Jamie Elliott Division 4 was a Finalist. Best of luck to Dermot Keane, James Flaherty and Elaine Hudson who, with their partners, will contest the Munster Doubles finals in UL on Sunday next.

  • Nora Walsh of Moher passed away on March 26. Better known to most of us as Noan Kiely, she was a pleasant, gentle lady who was adored by her family and rightly so. She was predeceased by her husband Dannny whose sudden death was a huge blow to her in 2000. Noan is survived by her sons Michael and Thomas, daughters, Ann, Joan and Noreen, her grandchildren Daniel, Mary, and Ellen, son-in-law Finbarr, daughter-in-law Maureen, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nephews and nieces, Requiem Mass for Noan Walsh of Moher, Moyvane, was celebrated in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane with burial in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane beside her husband Danny.
  • Carmel and Michael Flannery  both lost their lives in a horrific car accident near Nenagh, Co. Tipperary on Friday, March 28. Both were in their early sixties. Carmel was sister of Maura Nolan of Gale Bridge. Their son David Flannery was injured in the crash. Maura,  Jim and the Nolan family would like to thank the people of Moyvane and the surrounding area who traveled in such large numbers to Nenagh for the funerals.
  • The death also took place last week of Martin Sweeney, Tarmons, Moyvane. Although he had been battling an illness for quite some time his death was unexpected. Sincere sympathy is extended to his wife Marie, daughter Fiona, sons Gerard, David and John, grandson Conor, brothers Pat, Dan and Jim and his extended family. Mass was in St. Mary’s Church, Tarbert with burial in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane.
