Moyallon Flood Light Switch-On Ceremony

Iveagh Branch of the Pony Club had the Official Switch-On Ceremony for their new floodlights on Friday evening 26th September. This was in perfect time for the dark evenings which are now upon us. It was fantastic on Friday evening to see Pony Club grounds at Moyallon being used by the members during the hours of darkness.

These lights have been very generously funded by The Big Lottery Fund, Awards for All Programme, in the form of a £10,000 grant and will make a huge difference to Pony Club life as the nights draw in and over the winter months. The addition of the lights will make Moyallon an all-year venue and will provide the members and their families with even better value for their membership subscription and field levy.

The Switch-On Ceremony was attended by Liz Lowry, Area 17 Representative, who counted down to the switch-on; the excited club members filled the arena and celebrated as the lights turned on. Vanne Campbell, District Commissioner of the Branch thanked Billy McCombe and Áine Lavery for their hard work in both securing funding and managing the project. She also thanked the Big Lottery Fund for their support.

Moyallon will be open over the winter months for rallies, training and schooling. On occasions when there are no rallies, competitions or team training, any member can avail of the floodlit main arena for their own private schooling.

Iveagh Silver Show is on Saturday 4th October  – full schedule is on the Iveagh website and a Dengie Qualifier will also take place that day. Should the Show run late into the evening the flood lights will ensure that the show can continue unhindered by falling darkness.
