Today, we bid farewell to our Ladies player Kate Corcoran as she will be laid to rest after 1pm mass in Kilmacow. A dark cloud has hung over the club since last Sunday when news broke of Kate’s passing and all week we have been hugely heartened by the messages coming in from all over the country offering condolences to the Corcoran family and our club. From all the clubs in Waterford to Breaska Rovers in Limerick to Thomastown United in Kilkenny, the messages have come in. We wish to thank all clubs, leagues and people for personal messages across the week, it is very much appreciated. We will form a guard of honour before the funeral and would advise all that are attending to park at Kilmacow sports complex to free up parking for Family and friends at the church.
It is with a very heavy heart that we share the sad news of the passing of one our ladies team player’s, Kate Corcoran at the tender age of 21. A committed young lady who only started playing last year, training under the darker lights in Ashgrove ahead of our debut season in the Waterford league. There was never a session went by where Kate didn’t leave her mark, with her enthusiasm for a tackle shown on her team mates. Kate was one of the original girls who has stuck at it through good days and bad days, playing a key role in the establishment of our Ladies team alongside her little sister Ciara and stepmum Sarah, and starring in their first win up in Cahir in the lashing rain. Kate loved the rain, be it in training or matches as her team mates recalled this evening. As a ladies team and club, we are devastated beyond belief for the Corcoran family and will do our best in the coming days, weeks and months to help in anyway possible. Thank you must go to the following clubs Bohemians, Waterford Crystal, Tramore and Dungarvan United and all match officials for their understanding on Sunday morning when the news broke.
Rest in Peace Kate, a beautiful young woman taken far too soon.
First trip to Ballinroad for these lads in the u14B league this morning. Ballinroad were sharper today especially their centre forward who scored a peach of a goal in the second half to make it 4-1 and complete his hat trick. Sweet goal from the edge of the box for Naoise in his first foray in midfield. Conor was unlucky not to win a penalty in the first half. Final result was 4-1 to the home team.
Massive congratulations to Aoibhe V on scoring a fantastic hat trick Sunday. Aoibhe has been on fire 🔥 since the start of the season. 🍀🍀🍀👏👏👏
Congratulations to all our winners and as always thank you for your continued support.
All involved in Mooncoin Celtic wish the very best of luck to Mooncoin Intermediate Camogie and Hurling teams in their County Finals this coming weekend. 🤞 There will be a couple of 🏆🏆 being lifted this weekend.
We want to send out massive congratulations to two young men this weekend who have done brilliantly for themselves and their families.
First up is Ben Brennan who won a silver medal in the European Weightlifting Federation U15 Cup out in Slovenia, lifting just over 100kgs which is phenomenal.
Next to be congratulated is Emmet Cusack. Emmet won the 4 Nations Gold, International Gold and Team Gold in Carlow today , and yesterday in Dublin competing in a different associations International Competition, he also won gold. Again a massive well done to Emmet.
On a sunny day in September
Mooncoin set off on a day they would always remember
We travelled by bus to see the mighty girls in green
The biggest home crowd our National girls have ever seen
A day full of singing, laughing and cheering loud
The girls played well and did their country proud.
