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 Micha
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.
We are delighted to announce that Ronan Sweeney and his management team of Patrick Murray, Ian Lonergan and Pairic Canavan will remain in place for the 2021 season.
Best of luck to Ronan, his management & players in the coming year.

Stephen Schwer, RIP
1963 Moorefield Senior Hurling Medal Winner
The passing of Stevie Schwer on Tuesday morning breaks another link with the Moorefield senior hurling team who won the 1963 county championship for the second time in the history of the club. Reporting on the semi-final, the Leinster Leader of 12 October noted that “Stephen Schwer played with great dash and determination at midfield throughout and was at his best when partnered by Tom O’Connell in the second half”. He starred at centre forward in the final against Broadford and regarded that victory as the highlight of his career with Moorefield.
He had already won a junior championship with Moorefield in 1961 and wore the number 15 shirt when winning an All-Ireland junior title with Kildare against London, in London, on 30 September. Continue reading
