The season began with victory in the Aldridge Cup and only got better as the year went on culminating in a magnificent win in the senior football championship final with victory over arch rivals Sarsfields to take the title for the sixth time and the Dermot Burke Cup for the fifth time since 2000.

In between Aldridge Cup and Dermot Burke Cup wins The Moores collected the Herbert Cup, the Timmy Durney-Mick O’Keeffe Cup, adding the senior football league and the Leinster Leader Cup a – a truly magnificent achievement by any standards.

But Moorefield did not just rely on their senior footballers to fill their trophy cabinet.

It was in fact one of the most successful seasons that the club has enjoyed with their intermediate hurlers making history by taking that title (after a replay) and moving into the ranks of senior hurling for the 2011 season.

Other silverware followed with great wins for the camogie minor team, along with their U21s while the Ladies football side also brought home silverware making it one season to remember.
