Updating of E-mails; As PRO of the club it is my responsibility to ensure as many members as is possible is getting Info on what is happening in the club. One of the main avenues for this is the use of the E-mail system. It has come to my attention that there is some members of the club not receiving E-mails. If you are one of the members in this situation please contact me Seamus McGann on 087/2039726 or so we can add you to the list. One of the main Club Info E-mails is sent out on Tuesday Mornings between 10 and 12 with the lotto results so if your not receiving this your not on the list.

Well Done; Well Done to our footballers who have represented Kildare so far in the O’Byrne Cup this year and the best of luck on Sunday in the Semi-Final against DCU. Well done to Sean Cambell who was Man of the Match against Carlow.

Membership 2014; Membership is now been collected for 2014. There is a registration night organized for Friday 7th of Feburary from 7pm to 11pm and again on Sat morn from 10am to 2pm. The membership rates remain the same with the exception of the removal of the registration levy applied to female playing members. If you wish to pay you can do so by calling to the Club any Monday or Friday between 8pm and 9.30pm. Also on Saturday from 11am to 1pm. Paying your membership on time is of great importance to the club so we ask all our members to make an effort and pay early. In order to be eligible to play Gaelic Games with any Club a player must first be registered with the GAA and this is automatically done by paying your Membership. In simple terms this means if adult or juvenile players do not pay their membership, they are not eligible to play Gaelic games for the club. The prompt payment of membership helps Sarsfields to provide the players insurance scheme, Lighting, Pitches, dressing rooms, training equipment and much more. The club would like to thank all its 10 year members and to remind them that it has now expired and new membership can be paid as in the times above. If you need any further Info you can contact Kathleen (Ollie) Ryan at 086/2641115, or Christy Horan at 087/9249884.

Cardiac Screening; The club will have Cardiac Screening available to all Male and Female members from 14 – 35yrs on Saturday 8th Feburary from 10am in the club. This event is organized by Healthy Hearts , Healthy Lives, a mobile heart screening service set up by former GAA players John and Tony McEntee. The service helps to prevent sudden deaths in young people who may have sudden death adult syndrome. The screening takes about 5 min and is a non invasive and pain free procedure. Under 16s require parental/guardian consent and each individual is required to fill out a questionnaire. The test will include an ECG, and an Echocardiogram and consultation if required. All tests will be reported on by a cardiology consultant. Group screening cost is €45 to the individual (normal costs are €110 for one on one bookings). A minimum of 35 players is required to ensure the event can go ahead, so I urge all of gou to seriously consider taking up this opportunity. For further Info contact Ollie Ryan 086/2641115
