St. Stephens Day Fun Match  There is going to be a Fun game of Gaelic Football in Sarsfields on St. Stephens Day. This promises to be a good bit of craic and anyone can get involved. The Bar will be open after the match and no doubt the slagging will be good after a few beers. Throw in is at 12.30ish. We can split teams into over 35’s v rest of the world? Married v Single. Hopefully some of the Ladies who played in this years Leinster final might come out, as they will probably show the men how its done.

Also the Premier League Matches between Man Utd V Newcastle (15.00) and Arsenal V QPR (17.30 If u can still see) will be shown live.


Looking forward to seeing you there. Bring the Boots and the wallet!!

80s Night in the Club 27th Dec  There has been a change of plan as regards the 80s night in the club and it now has been changed to a later date in the new year.  

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.

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.
