Dale Thorpe, RIP

Moorefield GAA would like to send our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Dale Thorpe who has sadly passed away. Dale was a lifelong Moorefield supporter & got great joy supporting our teams over the years. He was a true Moorefield gentleman.

Our thoughts are with the Thorpe family during this difficult time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Mighty Moores- End of Year

Photographs

Our Mighty Moores had their last training session of 2020. We had a very different year but a fantastic one all the same, with lots of learning, fun and laughter! To mark the occasion the boys and girls were presented with the newly launched 2021 Mighty Moores’ training top. We’re looking forward to welcoming back all of our hard working players early next year.

We’d like to thank all the parents, coaches, mentors and players for all their efforts and hard work.

The training top will be available to order in the new year from our club shop.

Moorefield Tribute to Retired School Principals

The Cathaoirleach, Executive Committee, players and members of Moorefield GAA Club extend hearty congratulations to Mr Gerry King and Ms Noreen Duggan on their recent retirements as Principals of Scoil Mhuire Senior and Scoil na Naomh Uilig respectively.  

Since its foundation in 1975, Scoil Mhuire has had a long and mutually beneficial association with Moorefield, and we thank Mr King for his cooperation in facilitating our involvement with the school during his principalship.

The success of our teams is due in no small measure to him, his colleagues and former staff in facilitating our coaches who helped develop Gaelic games to a very high standard. Indeed, we have always been very happy to offer the services of many of our members – especially past pupils – to coach the students and develop their skills.

Noreen Duggan is a passionate Moorefield supporter and took great pride in our 2015 Minor Championship victory when her son, Colin Barrett, was captain.

She had the singular honour of leading a new school into a whole new world of education and developing a wonderful teaching and support staff.

The Moorefield members on her teaching staff had great respect for her and Pat Flynn was a great addition to her team eight years ago. We know they helped the development of Gaelic games and participation in Cumann na mBunscol competitions and in the importance of good discipline and club/school loyalty which is vital in making ours a better community.

Dozens of Moorefield players who attended the Scoil Mhuire have worn the Kildare jersey with pride and provide good role models for our young people, and many from Scoil na Naomh Uilig will do so in the future.

We appreciated the attendance of Gerry and Noreen at many of our Annual Award functions and look forward to their company on similar occasions in the future. May they have long and happy retirements, secure in the knowledge that they have left a lasting imprint on Moorefield Club.

Bloody Sunday- The GAA Remembers

 

B100dy Sunday – A Candle at Dusk

As we cannot gather to commemorate the lives lost on Bloody Sunday, we are calling on the GAA Community to do so from afar. We are asking all our members and supporters to light a candle at dusk this Saturday evening, 21 November. 

Croke Park Commemoration

On Saturday evening the GAA will stage a special remembrance ceremony to honour the 14 victims killed at Croke Park by Crown Forces on Bloody Sunday, November 21, 1920. They will be remembered in a ceremony that will coincide with the lighting of 14 flames in a dedicated area of Hill 16 and a corresponding pillar of light dedicated to each of those who died.     

Ard Stiúrthóir Tom Ryan and Uachtarán CLG John Horan will lay wreaths on the spot where Tipperary corner back Michael Hogan was fatally shot that day, an area of the field in front of Gate 43 at the northern end of the stadium. They will be joined by Uachtarán na hÉireann Michael D Higgins and An Taoiseach Micheál Martin. 

Colm Mac Con Iomaire will perform live his specially commissioned piece of music, More Than A Game

The ceremony will be broadcast live by RTÉ from 6pm, ahead of the Leinster GAA Football Final. A commemorative programme can be purchased here.
