Well, the journey has ended just one stop from the terminus. But it was a great journey and we are rightly proud of everyone involved. A tribute to our Senior team and management which speaks for every Moorefield supporter who has enjoyed the trip in the first class seats.





To Ross, Kevin, Frankie and all you brave and courageous Moorefield men who have graced the fields of Kildare and Leinster over the past long twelve months. 


It’s tough to lose, especially after such a wonderful year and all the training and preparations for the All- Ireland semi-final. 


The team, panel and management have proudly flown the Moorefield flag and you did so with great commitment, determination and love of all that is Moorefield. We owe every one of you a tremendous debt of gratitude for all the great days you have given us and the very special memories that we will treasure for a lifetime.


Well done on such marvellous achievements and long may you enjoy the memories yourselves. Only with the passage of time, and into your later years, will you cherish the times when you donned the green and white of Moorefield. When your playing days are long over, you can recall the deeds of 2018, and many others with our great club, and you will reflect on those glorious days with great fondness and affection.


The following excerpt from the speech ‘Citizenship In A Republic’, by United States President, Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne University in Paris on 23 April, 1910 shows that hard work, tenacity, and a desire to do the right thing can get anyone far in life. He says that the man we should praise is the one who’s out there fighting the big battles, even if those battles end in defeat. Glory and honor come to those “who spend themselves in a worthy cause.” That is true of football, and all sport.


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
