Talk of the Town in Moyvane

Every parish seems to be holding a Strictly competition these days, if photos in The Kerryman are anything to go by.

Moyvane are holding their one on May 1st 2016 and they have roped in a prestigious panel of judges. They have a real dancing judge, a politician who had to employ some fancy footwork to get away from an enraged cow, a beauty queen and a football administrator. Promises to be a good night!

The dancers: (L-R) Owen Stack, Siobhan Fitzgerald, Shane Stack, Regina Galvin, Diarmuid Fitzmaurice, Sean Walsh, Diarmuid Leahy, Shauna Foley, Brendan Galvin, Kevin Kennelly, Fiona Buckley, Aine Scannell, Tara Mulvihill, Marie Stack, Norella Molyneaux, Karina Stack, Brenda Kennelly, James Fogarty, Liam Corridan and John Mulvihill.

A Back Lane

Listowel is like a rabbit warren with its maze of back lanes. This one is Mill Lane opposite the offices of The Revenue Commissioners.
