MOYVANE NOTES November 15, 2021

WHAT NOW? I was foolish enough to think that we could return to Bingo a month ago! How things have changed! I have been keeping in touch with our bingo supplier and it is the same countrywide, in fact some places are considering closing again. I hope you are all keeping well and safe. To be quite honest I don’t know when we will see you all again, it looks like it may not be this year!

He will have lots of presents for all you boys and girls. Himself and Mrs. Claus are looking forward to being back again in the Marian Hall, Moyvane, for the Family Fun day in 2022.

LIEUTENANT EDDIE CARMODY There is a call for all Moyvane people to remember a fallen Moyvane hero. Lieutenant Eddie Carmody was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He moved to Ballylongford to work on a local farm in his youth. He was an outstanding Gaelic footballer and an all-round athlete. He was so well revered he became Lieutenant within the local volunteers. Near Doctors cross in Ballylongford on November 22 1920 at about 3.00am, he was attacked by a patrol of Black and Tans. He was severely wounded after being fired upon several times, but still managed to struggle away a few hundred yards. The Black and Tans found him after a brief search and dragged him onto the roadway, where he was kicked and beaten with rifle butts. After being stabbed by the soldier’s bayonets in a frenzied attack he was shot resulting in his death. His body was then put onto a cart and dragged through the village to the local barrack’s, where he was left outside in a turf shed. His body was found the following day by a family member. Eddie Carmody was unarmed at the time of his murder. This year is 101 years since his murder but due to lockdown at this time last year there was no centenary event to commemorate him. An event organised by the Carmody family will take place this Saturday November 20 at 7:30 P.M. at the Eddie Carmody monument in Rusheen, Ballylongford. The monument is located next to the Doctors surgery (old road). This is about 1 kilometer from Heaphy’s shop as you go in the Ballybunion direction, about a 5 minute walk from the shop. The Carmody family will lay a wreath, there will be a speech about the history of the event and music and song. All are welcome to come and remember this fallen Moyvane hero who died for Ireland. This is a non political event.
