Despite Tipperary Senior Hurlers and Footballers both being defeated in their national league games at the weekend, it was great to see Moyle Rovers Representative on both panels over the weekend.

With 5 Moyle Rovers nominated for the Annual Nationalist awards. The results were eagerly awaited on. The club were delighted to hear that Sean Carey would be receiving the Intermediate Hurler of the Year award, at next Saturday awards ceremony in Hotel Minella.

Congratulations Sean


The Recent passing of Michael ”Mickey” Ryan following a relatively short illness caused great sadness in our community of Powerstown/Lisronagh and especially to the Members of the Moyle Rovers G.A.A Club. Mickey or “the Boss” as he was fondly known had a life long link with our club. He was an outstanding playing member in his early years, he was secretary of our club in the early - mid sixties, he was a committee member for a number of years and in later years was a loyal supporter. His playing career spanned three decades, the fifties, Sixties and seventies. He was captain of the Moyle Rovers team that won the county Junior Football Championship in 1959.

He was equally adept at both hurling and football. His normal playing position in Hurling was full back and in Football either centre field or centre back. He was not the tallest of men for the positions that he played in, but he made up for his lack of inches by possessing a good brain, a good positional sense and by being committed competitor who never took a step backwards or gave an inch to anyone. Mickey was a quiet private man in many ways yet he had a large circle of friends was very well known and universally popular with all. He loved attending games, discussing some or a game of “25” at which he was very adept. Farming was his main occupation but he was also a rare genius with his hands. Plumbing, carpentry, mechanics, electrics, welding, etc,etc came equally to him even though he got no formal training in any, He was very well read in all aspects of life and liked nothing better than to sit down and discuss intelligently the on going matters of the day. “Mickey” you will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all in our community. To your brother Johnny, sisters Peggy & Nellie and extended family we offer our sympathy. May he rest in peace.
