New Moyvane GAA CrestHere is the wonderful new GAA crest that Conor Mulvihill created for our club and which is now on the Jersies of all ‘Boro’ men and women as they take the field each week bringing glory to the village. Our GAA club has been active in redeveloping Con Brosnan park over the past couple of years. We now have a state of the art all-weather pitch and large capacity stand which should ensure Moyvane is now a serious contender for hosting North Kerry Finals.

2005 North Kerry FinalMoyvane was the setting for the 2005 North Kerry Championship Final between Listowel and Ballyduff on December 17th. With a display, which was rich in effort and endeavour, Ballyduff prevailed in an exciting, competitive encounter against a highly fancied Listowel team. The rain lashed down during the game but that was soon forgotten with the fine feast of pork from the pig roasted on a spit in the village by Bobby Stack and others.

The Final was the first Senior final to be held in Con Brosnan Park for over 20 years – now with our state of the art redeveloped pitch, stand and dressing-rooms, we expect Moyvane to be the location of many future North Kerry Finals. The old stand was the second one ever built in Kerry (in 1971), after the one in Austin Stacks Park, Tralee. At the time, the only pitches in Munster to have stands were the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick and the Athletic Grounds in Cork. Our original stand was even older than the stands in Semple Stadium in Thurles and Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney.
