We had two fun filled Halloween days in Moorefield. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

** Mighty Moores Hurloween Training **

We had a great Halloween morning in Moorefield today!

After Hurloween training we had hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream for all the Mighty Moores boys and girls. This was kindly sponsored by former Senior Hurler Dave Smith and Milligram Coffee

Our Under-7/ Under-10s were provided with sweets and goodie bags including a Hi-Vis boot bag and Hi-Vis vest (for mam/dad) Thanks to the Road Safety Authority.

Our Under-11 and Under-12s were kindly sponsored goodie bags by Keith Ryan of DKR Heating Services. It’s very much appreciated. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

** Mini Moores Pumpkin Patch Training **

Moorefield was over run with more than 200 football monsters, witches and zombies this morning! Thank you to everyone who joined us for an extra special morning. We look forward to seeing all of your pumpkin carvings for our competition.

A huge thank you to Mc Conville’s Supervalu Monasterevin for their sponsorship of our pumpkin patch & goody bags; Lillywhites Ice Cream for Hire for our ice creams and Manguard Plus Limited who sponsored our U11 & U12 Penalty competition. The Fancy Dress winners and Pumpkin Carvings are attached in the link above.

Congratulations to Henry McCormick, Jake Adderley, Maisy Collins and Molly O’Neill who have each won a Jersey in our Mini Moores pumpkin carving competition. A special thanks to McConville’s SuperValu for providing the pumpkins.

 

** Under-11 Girls Football **

Well done to the U11 girls football team members, their families and mentors who took part in a virtual Halloween dress up competition. Photographs are available at the link above.

Covid- 19 Update

21st October

Below please note some important updates and clarifications in relation to Covid matters as we move to Level 5 across the country:

For Consideration of Clubs:

1. Club Games and Training

Level 5 restrictions mean neither adult club games nor Training can take place between now and December 1st. The GAA is adopting a 32-County approach in this context and therefore training for adult teams will not be allowed in the North either.

From midnight tonight, training at Minor level and below only will be permitted for clubs in all 32 Counties  (but not inter-county). However it must be on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people. Dressing Rooms cannot be used and the Health Questionnaire must be filled out by all those participating. Attendance by parents/guardians should be on the basis of one per child (for child protection reasons) and the Health Questionnaire must be filled out by all of those coming into the ground.

Best Wishes Adam, Paraic, Alan and Eddie

Best wishes to Senior Hurler Adam Flood and to Senior Footballer Eddie Heavey who commence their Tour of Duty in Syria with the Defence Forces. Stay safe & we look forward to seeing you back in action for Moorefield on your return.

A huge thanks to Paraic Murphy who finished up today as Manager for the U11 ladies football team as he heads away for  6 months on Tour of Duty. Paraic has invested hours working with our wonderful U11 ladies team. Huge thanks to Paraic and best of luck. Paul Kenny, Joyce O’Toole and Kim Morrissey will continue to manage the U11 while Paraic is away.

Best wishes to the Underage Chairman, Alan Courtney, who also embarks on a tour of duty to Syria with the Defence Forces. Not only the Chairman but also Mentor to our U10 Mini Moores Alan will be missed at training each Saturday. We are very grateful to Alan for the countless hours he has devoted to the underage footballers from U6 to U16 since becoming Underage Chairman. On his last evening at the club we were delighted to present Alan with a Jersey as a token of our gratitude.

* County Final Match Day Regulations *

Due to the current COVID 19 situation and the restrictions in place related to attendance at GAA games we are calling on all our supporters lucky enough to be in attendance at tomorrow’s County final to respect the principle of social distancing. Under no circumstances should any Moorefield supporter venture onto the pitch after the game. Please cheer on our team from the stands throughout.

Win, lose or draw, apart from a post match meal for the Senior Football Panel, there will be no post match get together in the Moorefield clubhouse as would otherwise take place when we reach a County final.

We know that this is not how we normally do things in Moorefield but in the interest of health and safety in these unprecedented times we ask all of our loyal supporters for their understanding at this time.
