Ladies AGM   Sarsfields Ladies GAA held their AGM on Thursday 18th December at 8.00pm in the Roseberry room in Sarsfields. Christy Horan stays on as Chairman and Christine Flynn takes over as the new secretary. The club would like to thank Eddie Manning and Damien Aulsberry for their hard work throughout the year. The section is now looking for a new PRO so if anyone is interested please contact Shea McGann on 087/2039726.  


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 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.

Looking for old Photos  The Club are looking to build on its already large collection of photos and especially with some older Photos of teams or individuals. If you have any and would like to share them with the club you can contact Seamus McGann Club PRO at 087/2039726 or E-mail


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
