Fundraising Event for; Relay For Life

The Relay for Life Table Quiz was a great success and the club would like to thank all those who made the effort and came along and supported the event. Also we would like to thank all who sponsored prizes and gave donations for the cause.

Well done to our Secretary Liam Moore who done great work in getting the event organised. We can look forward to the big event itself which is laid out below and once again hope we get the great support from all.



The Team needs a name and the title must contain the word Sarsfields. If you have any suggestions you can send them to the E-mail below. All help needed folks.


This is a great opportunity to get involved with events that go on within the club and, also a chance for you to remember or to honour someone that has been touched by cancer. The event will go on for 24 hours on the Curragh from 5pm to 5pm on the dates below. We will also have two tents erected in the admin area of the event which will be decked out in all the Sarsfields colours and banners. Ongoing at the tents we will have a fundraiser so this is where we need all the members of Sarsfields to call up and support the event with a show of force. Keep an eye on all the sites as we will keep you updated on the event. 


Relay for Life Kildare takes place on September 5th. and 6th. at The Curragh Race Course. Sarsfields GAA Club is organising teams in memory of members lost to cancer and to honour members who are survivors. After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Candle of Hope Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags of sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants walk a lap in silence.

At Relay For Life the VIPs are those people who have been diagnosed with cancer and have survived it in the past or are fighting it right now. As with all events, we need volunteers to help make the event a success. If you can give us any amount of your time either before or during the event (or both), we would love to hear from you. Please email your contact details to Liam at

For further information email Liam or 087 6606035 086 3000114

Condolences. Sarsfields send their condolences to the Dunne Family on the recent death of Kevin Dunne. Also to the Cornally Family on the recent death of John Cornally (Jnr).

Used Football & Hurling Gear As the club Equipment officer it is my aim to raise funds whenever possible, to ease the cost on the club on buying training equipment.

What we need, Boots (all sizes), Helmets, any O’Neills gear, Jerseys, Hoodies etc. Any Monies made from this will be used to buy training gear for the club. I will start to collect on Saturday morn coming 29th Mar, so if you are attending the Academy or you can call in with some used gear please leave it in the shop.

Cumann Na Sáirseálach  On Saturday 1st March the club launched its new fund raising Initiative which is known as Cumann na Sáirsealach. The idea behind this Fundraising Project is to try and improve the Facilities of the club especially in areas such as the upkeep of pitches, Training equipment for our underage level , ie. Sets of Goals, Footballs, cones etc. Along with this it is also the aim of Cumann Ná Sáirseálach to build Dressing rooms at the Pitch 2 and 3 end of the grounds, this is something that is badly needed to improve our ability to host matches due to the large number of teams in the club. (Last year we had 37 teams competed at all levels). The Club has now received Planning Permission to carry out this project. To date Cumann Ná Sairsealach has funded the New ball stop nets on the main pitch and on pitch 3. It has also contributed to the sanding which has recently taken place on the pitches and will improve the playing surface, and also to training equipment for underage.

All the info on this can be found on the web site This is a great opportunity to support your club and help us to develop it more for the future.
