Today Moyard House still sits in immaculately landscaped grounds. Over the years a few minor alterations have been made but the essential characteristics of the garden remain.


Fronting the Glen Road a woodland was planted in 1996. Over the years this has matured into a sanctuary for wildlife and birds of all types.
The orchards still remain at the side of the house and the vegetable garden planted over 20 years ago still bears a bountiful crop each year.
The trees, some over 100 years old are majestic and most of them have preservation orders to ensure their long term future. Unfortunately over the years we have lost some old trees due to high winds and old age, however new saplings are quickly planted.


All the work and management of thegardens is carried out by members of the Society in particular Kevin Crawford and Danny McKenna. Up until 2009 John Dorris was the head greenkeeper which he undertook alongside his long term role as Society treasurer.

The republican ethos pervades every sinew of the Roddy McCorley Society. That is evidenced when walking through the gardens or enjoying a convivial drink with friends in the house. So it is not surprising that over the years the Roddy McCorley Society willingly allowed monuments to be erected within the gardens to the memory of volunteers of Oglaigh Na hEireann that gave their lives for their republican beliefs.

The society is proud to be associated with these memorials and every visitor to the clubrooms is amazed at the workmanship and intricacy of the stonework on each of the memorials.
