Well done to our Mighty Moores who are using their time off from school wisely and continuing to improve their skills.
Remember to limit the time that our children are mixing with others!
Calling our Underage Footballers!
To help you stay active over the coming weeks we are setting you a skills challenge that you can complete in your back garden. Show us how you are getting on by posting your pictures or videos below. You can also tag us in your stories.
Day 1: First up we want to see your spectacular solo’s.
Complete 40 on your weaker foot, 50 on your strong foot.
Day 2: It’s time for a new Skills Challenge. Big thank you to Jamie and Charlie for helping to demonstrate today’s skill.-15 high catches in row, extend arms fully over your head to catch the ball
– Your feet must leave the ground while completing catch
– Ensure ball is pulled into your tummy.
Day 3: Today we are focusing on your kicking and target practice. We are also mixing things up a bit by taking you from your back garden, to your driveways or another open space. Who can kick a ball into their car boot?
Day 4: Thank you to Tom Kinsella for demonstrating today’s challenge. How many times can you hit the crossbar? If you don’t have access to a set of goals mark a target on a wall and aim for that instead.
Day 5/ Mother’s Day: We have an extra special Skills Challenge for you today. To celebrate our wonderful Moorefield mammies we’re asking you to head to the garden and see how many hand passes you and your mother can complete in 60 seconds. Make sure you let us know how you get on as the pair with the most hand passes will win a €20 voucher for the club shop.
Day 6: Today we are asking you to get creative and set up your own obstacle course. Send us in the details including pictures of your course and we will pick one as a future challenge.
Day 7: Hang a Jersey from any of the following and hit it: tree, washing line, gate, fence, wall, goalposts.
* Celebrating World Down Syndrome Week! *
Yesterday was selected as world Down Syndrome Day. The date itself was selected for very clever reasons; it is held on the 21st day of the 3rd month, which is a hat-tip to the uniqueness of the triplication of the 21st chromosome which leads to Down Syndrome.
It’s not too late to raise awareness for Down Syndrome. Wearing odd socks is the chosen strategy.
Pictured here is the beautiful Evie who is proudly supporting Moorefield GAA.

Wishing all our wonderful Moorefield mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day, have a great day.
Thank you to all the families who joined in our Mother‘s Day Skills Challenge. Due to the number of entries we have decided to give a prize to both the highest scoring boy and girl.
We are delighted to announce our winners as:
Underage Girls: Shona Naughton
Underage Boys: Cian Potts
Ladies: Erica Aungier.
Congratulations to all.
It has been a long established fact that nothing stops our Mini Moores.
While we all pull together to “flatten the curve” the traditional Mini Moores training at 11am on a Saturday in Moorefield is suspended. However, on Saturday 21st March our Mini Moores from U6 to U11 took to their back gardens at 11am to follow the instructive videos of the Mini Moores mentors.
From recreating the check in desk to the rousing cheer of “Moorefield” at the end of training our Mini Moores had a fun filled morning.
Many thanks to our Mentors and their families for putting the videos together.
The Mini Moores will train again next Saturday morning at 11am in their gardens. If you would like to join the Mini Moores please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
