Biography:
A member of Linfield's 1890/91 "Double" winning side, Dick Moore played in all three of Ireland's matches that season. A career soldier, he played for Dundalk (not the current club) while stationed in the town with the Royal Irish Rifles and appeared for them in a 3-2 defeat by Bohemians in the 1897 Leinster Cup final. He returned to Linfield for the 1897/98 season and later, although "getting old" turned out for Dundalk Rovers.

Second Lieutenant Moore was killed in an air attack in Greece while serving with the Royal Irish Fusiliers during the closing weeks of the Great War. He was 50* years old and left behind his wife, Ellen.
