Lotto Tickets for December  Any Lotto Ticket that is purchased in the club lotto draw for the 1st, 8th and the 15th of December that does not win a prize will be put into the drum for a Christmas draw on the 20th of December which is our club night. There will be a number of prizes on the night which will also include 7 Meat Vouchers valued at €50 each.

Calendar 2015  We are looking for Businesses within the club or outside the club to take an advertisement slot in the new club calendar for 2015. If you are interested you can e-mail for further information.

National Draw  The GAA announced its second national club draw which was launched in Croke Park earlier this week. The draw itself will take place on 27th February 2015 at Congress. The cost of each ticket is €10 and while all of the prizes are provided by the GAA at central level, the proceeds from each ticket sale stays with the selling club so for every ticket sold your club keeps 100% of the funds. 

This draw will provide Sarsfields GAA club with excellent opportunity to start 2015 off on the right foot financially if we can sell a large number of these tickets. Your support in this draw would be greatly appreciated.

All sold tickets will have to be returned by 24th January 2015 giving each club a 14 week period to sell the tickets plus the added bonus of the festive period which should also help sales.  

Main Pitch Now Closed  The main pitch has been resodded and is now closed for the foreseeable future. Also there will be ongoing repair work on pitch 2 and 3.

Sarsfields Jumpers The club will be putting in an order for jumpers in all sizes and will have them for sale in the shop over the next few weeks. If anyone is interested please contact Angie on 086/0762710

Exercising of Dogs The Club Officer board has received a complaint from a Parent over a child returning home from training with Dog fouling on their nicks. Due to this it is now forbidden to walk or exercise a Dog in the area of pitch 2, 3 and 4. If you wish to bring a dog to the club it must be kept on a lead at all times and remain on the hard standing that surrounds the area of the main pitch. In the event of the Dog fouling it must be picked up placed in a bag and put in the nearest Bin. We thank you for your help
