New Moyvane playground to be officially opened
THIS Sunday, July 20, will mark the end of a tireless, three year campaign by locals in Moyvane when they gather to celebrate the official opening of the village's new playground.
The day will be a very special one for the playground committee members who held their first public meeting about the project back in October 2011.
It will also be a day to remember for six year old local boy, Josh Nestor, who has been selected to officially cut the ribbon and declare the playground open.
Treasurer of the playground committee, Martin Mulvihill, explained that a competition was held among the local primary school children in the village and Josh's name was chosen to officiate.
"I suppose we wanted to keep politics out of it and give the honour to one of our young children, so Josh will be doing the honours," he said.
Other guests expected to take part in the celebrations will be the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne, Mayor of Kerry John Brassil and representatives from LEADER and the Department of Children.
"This has been a long time coming and Sunday will be a very important day for the committee in particular who have been working on this since October 2011," Martin said. "I may be biased, but we now have a very impressive facility here in Moyvane and the feedback has been extremely positive."
Sunday's official opening will take place at 2pm.
