65 heifers leave Moate for Kosovo
October 13 saw Moate Bóthar Group continue its great work in helping poor families in Third World countries. Sixty-five heifers sourced and raised by the group left Pat Allen's farmyard and began their journey to Kosovo.

The following were the lucky winners: 1st prize - Ken Martin, Trim; 2nd prize - Gerry Campbell, Shurock; 3rd prize - Michael Martin, Mulholland, Athlone; 4th prize - Bríd Costello, Caltra; 5th prize - Dominique Clarke, Dunboyne and 6th prize- Leona McManus, Hall. Prizes will be presented on Friday next, October 30, in P Egan's pub, Moate, at 8.30pm.
