Moyvane Notes – 8th January, 2005


IT has been quite an eventful year in the locality. In October a commerorative weekend was held in memory of the late Phil Cunningham who was from Glownlee, Moyvane. Phil Cunningham was very active in Munster region during the 1798 Rebellion and later was executed for his activities. At the commemorations, a plaque was erected at the entrance to the school to commerorate the 200th anniversary of his death.

Moyvane GAA were busy redeveloping the playing field, and work has already begun in the reconstruction of the stand. The Development Association has also been active around the village.

Another item that should be addressed are all the elecrical poles located within the village, which is an eyesore. This correspondent is grateful to all who contributed to these notes, especially to Teddy Keane of Moyvanne GAA for his weekly contributions.
