Calendar 2015  The Club Calendar is now on sale in the club shop. Some great pictures of the year gone by. Please support thank you.  

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, if you have your tickets sold or not the need to be handed back into the club Secretary before the 24th of Jan. Thank you.
