Mooncoin GAA
I would like to sincerely congratulate and thank my fellow club members, our sponsors, the Kilkenny and Waterford teams and the people of Mooncoin for making last Sundays official opening such a wonderful success. Equally well done to our Intermediate team for a very strong performance against Gowran last Saturday evening. These are positive steps in our efforts to drive our teams and our parish forward. Well done to everyone, take a bow you deserve it.
