2019

Well done to Connor Price, who was presented with the Davy Dennis Cup at our Hurling Awards Night last night. The Cup honours the memory of Cork man, Davy Dennis, who came to Newbridge in 1954 and joined Moorefield because he perceived Moorefield as having a positive attitude towards the game of hurling. Connor is a member of the Under-14 team and has displayed dedication, respectfulness, commitment, sportsmanship and all the attributes to make him a worthy winner of this award for 2019. 

Connor was presented with the Cup by last year’s winner, Ciarán Mulvey. Thank you to Lorcán O’Rourke who also joined us for the presentation of this award.

Congratulations to Ciarán Mulvey  who is the second recipient of the Davy Dennis Cup. The Cup honours the memory of a Cork man who came to work in Newbridge in 1954 and joined Moorefield because the club was “committed to entering hurling teams in the championships” and he perceived Moorefield as having a positive attitude to our traditional field game. Ciarán received his award from last year’s winner Rory Mc Grath.

Ciarán won this award as he is gets on very well with all off his peers and everyone likes him. His attitude to training and improving his skills is one of the best, he hates missing training and he always gives it everything. For this commitment and effort he was made captain of the under-15s this year. He always handles himself with integrity and confidence and always has a smile on his face. Ciarán plays hard but fair and he is never cautioned by referees. The harder the challenge, the harder he works which will always guarantee excellence. He is a well deserved recipient of the Davy Dennis award. Well done Ciarán.
