Fundraising Event for; Relay For Life.

As a fund raiser we will be running a Table Quiz in the Club house on Saturday Aug 9th at 8.30. Table of 4 will be €40. Yur support would be greatly apprecated. Thank you.



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 honour 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

A meeting is scheduled for Sarsfields Clubhouse on Wednesday 30th July AT 9PM.

Please come along. Our patron Dermot Earley and a member of the Kildare organising committee will be present to explain further what is involved. For further information email Liam or 087 6606035 086 3000114

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. Over the next few weeks I will be trying to collect as much gear as possible and then sell it for a small fee on a Saturday morn at the Academy. 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.
