End of an Era

All in Mooncoin Celtic would like to wish the very best for the future to Michael and Alice Blanchfield who finished in their roles as not just owners of Centra Mooncoin but also as the custodians of the main hub in our village. Covid 19 was to prove challenging for so many in our country, but Blanchfields were to the forefront in helping people locally and really excelled in how they helped the community during a very trying period. Any shop that can sell one winning Lotto ticket is special but to sell two in the space of a few years was something else and will forever be in the history books (We still can’t believe it wasn’t the 300 club syndicate) . As a club, we are extremely grateful for the support Michael and Alice showed us over the years in whatever way they could. Best of luck and good health going forward.

Mooncoin Celtic Soccer Marathon 2023

Last Sunday we held our annual soccer marathon which was followed by our end of season awards. A big crowd came through our new gates and enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon with plenty of fun had among coaches and players in all games and cross bar challenges. We finished with our player of the year awards for season 2022 /2023. A big thanks to everyone that helped set up for the day, Wild Willow Coffee Trailer for pitching up for the day and our two chefs Adam Cunningham and Mark Quinn for running the BBQ. Thanks must go to Mondo’s Takeaway for sponsoring our crossbar challenge prizes. Final thanks goes to everyone that sponsored our Soccer Marathon, it was very much appreciated.

A birds eye view

We had an eye in the sky during the week to showcase some of the work done in the last 12 months at a cost of just under €160,000.

None of this would have been possible without the support of everyone in our 300 club and everyone supporting our 50 50 draw. Thank you for your continued support.

Soccer Marathon Third Time Luck

Next Sunday (July 30th) at the third time of asking, we will hold our Soccer Marathon in Suir Cresent from 2-5.30 followed by the presentation of our end of season awards.

Wild Willow Coffee Trailer will be on site as well as a BBQ overseen by our two club chefs.

We would like to thank all of the people to date who have contributed sponsorship via the link and urge all to share the link with friends and family that might support our club.

Looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday.


This week, we have Garry Flood Landscaping on site in Suir Crescent carrying out the annual sanding, shockwaving and overseeding of the entire ground.

This type of maintenance is crucial and would not be possible without the support of so many through our 300 Club Syndicate and our 50 50 draws.

Exciting News: Funding Grant

We are delighted to announce that we have been granted €20,000 as part of the Community Recognition Fund led by Kilkenny County Council.

This will fund the road surfacing from the roadway in Suir Cresent up to the new entrance which will be started shortly.

Thank you as always for your continued support, without the support of all stakeholders in helping develop our facilities, we would not be granted such funding to enhance the facilties.
