Disappointed and disgraceful were two of the most common word in the village last Thursday morning when locals discovered that the old car painted in St. Mochtas colours and parked in a space not effecting anyone was deliberately burnt the night before.
Thankfully no one was injured or hurt buy it is very disappointing that this should happen in amid the celebrations that most people are joining in with the Mochtas success story this season. Anyone with any information should contact the Gardai.
Hopefully the success of the Mochtas will continue this week when they meet Laois Champions Courtwood in the quarter final of the Leinster Intermediate Championship. The game will be played again in Ardee and Throw in is at 1.30pm. We know the team will again get good support and we join with everyone wishing the players manager selectors and mentors all the best and congratulate them on getting this far.
