    The 'Cactus' Moran Community Cup Challenge Event…

    The 'Cactus' Moran Cup Community Challenge Event will remember and celebrate the legacy Michael 'Cactus' Moran left to the youth of the valley. 'Cactus' worked alongside his friend Louis Ballangarry for many years guiding and supporting children as they pursued a sports pathway.
