Moyvane GAA:
At a recent meeting it was decided that the club needs to raise finance urgently. A lot of money has been invested in the pitch and facilities in recent years but maintenance is vital, ongoing and costly. With that in mind it is hoped to expand the sale of the weekly Lotto by making subscriptions available annually at a cost of €100, which gives you two free draws per year. Your support would be welcome and appreciated and it would be helpful if you could encourage your relatives abroad to support their local club by subscribing. The success of the under age teams last year which was celebrated recently proves the effort that is being invested in the young people of the parish. For further details please contact any committee member.
