Leinster Special Junior Hurling Championship Semi Final: Rataoth 1-12 Sarsfields 0-8.


Despite leading Sarsfields by nine points at half time 1-9 to 0-3 in this Leinster Special Junior Hurling Semi final in Ratoath on Sunday, the more skilful Ratoath had to use all their experience and guile in the end to survive a brave Sarsfields second half comeback. It was the clichéd game of two halves with Ratoath dominating the first half and Sarsfields the second.

After 11 minutes when a free by Ratoath corner forward Michael Cooper that appeared to be going over the bar dipped suddenly to deceive Sarsfields goalkeeper Dennis Lehart to put Rataoth 1-4 to 0-2 ahead it was all one way traffic for Ratoath. They added a further five points, one each from Michael Cooper and Diarmuid Brennan and three from the impressive Full Forward Phillip Lanigan as Sarsfields struggled to come to terms with the pace and power of Ratoath before Sarsfields managed to get their first score in 19 minutes when Sarsfields Centre Forward Danny Watson pointed to leave the score 1-9 to 0-3 in favour of Ratoath as half time approached.

            Sarsfield were a revitalised team in the second half as they carried the game to Ratoath. A point apiece form Tomás Lawless and Mick Aherne cut the deficit to seven points 1-9 to 0-5 before Ratoath registered their first score from the influential Michael Cooper against the run of play after 10 minutes. Such was Sarsfields second half dominance that they held  Ratoath to just three second half points. But it wasn’t to be enough as Ratoath’s half time lead gave them a big enough cushion to absorb Sarsfields second half pressure.

The main difference between the sides was that during Sarsfields second half dominance they were unable, unlike Ratoath in the first half to convert enough of their chances into scores. A combination of mixed opportunities and some excellent defending by the Ratoath defensive sextet where on numerous occasions they were able to deprive Sarsfields forwards of the ball just as they got into good scoring positions ensured their qualification for the Leinster final despite their poverty of second half possession. Best for Ratoath were Diarmuid Brennan, Michael Cooper, Phillip Lanigan, Eoghan McMahon, Barrry Crowley and Kenneth Fitzmaurice. Best for Sarsfields were Paul Murray, Frank Maguire, Gary Hogan, Thomás Lawless, Danny Watson and Mick Aherne.

Sash U15 Girls Capture County Crown

By Dema Houlihan


Sarsfields 6-12   Naas 2-04

Sarsfields U15 girls rounded off a great year, with victory over local
rivals Náas in girls U15 county final at Náas GAA club
last Saturday. Played in ideal conditions, with little or no wind, the
pitch was presented in very good condition considering the weather of
late. These two clubs met 8 weeks ago in the U14 div 1 county league final,
where Sarsfields prevailed by 2 points, and the teams playing on Saturday
contained the bulk of players from that final. On this occasion the strength in depth of Sarsfields club told

Sarsfields after a slow start they soon found their scoring range.  Roísin Byrne and Laura Houlihan scored two superb goals to lead by 2-5 to 0-2 pts at half time. Right from the start of the second half, it was obvious from the passion displayed by the Sash girls, that they were determined not to let their advantage slip and a further 3 goals from Roisín Byrne and another from Aoise Dempsey who had just entered the fray, all but sealed victory. All 6 forwards plus subs Shauna Burke, Tara Cairnduff, Rachel Dunphy and Sophie Ellis shared in the points tally, with some beautiful long
range scores from Muireann Kavanagh and Sadbh McDonnell, coupled with
the style and finesse of Emma Kelly, Caoimhe McKenna, Aileen Coyne,
Laura Houlihan and Roisin Byrne added to their lead.
 Náas are a very good team, but unfortunately on the day they met a Sarsfield midfield and defence that were at the top of their game. An excellent performance from keeper  Caoimhe McConnell who denied Naas on more than one occasion, plus the impassable full back Mia Donnelly who was instrumental in everything around her, aided by corner backs Danielle English and Rebecca O’Sullivan who were both superb, while very little got past the very busy half back line of Hannah Rogerson, Roisin Dempsey and Aoife Bergin. The ever-reliable mid-fielders, Sarah Sheridan, who gave 100% as usual coupled with the fielding and long passes of Sabdh McDonnell, which made it an all round special day. To their credit Naas didn’t give up and replied with a couple of goals and points of their own, but Sarsfields were not to be denied, and duly rounded off a most fantastic year as this team is a combination of U14 treble winners (spring league, Féile champions, U14 Div 1 league) and some of the U16 county finalists.

Good Luck to the U11 Girls in the Division 1 League Final next Saturday. The Ladies football AGM takes place in the clubhouse on Sunday next November 30th in the Clubhouse at 5.30 when a memorable season will be reviewed.

Commiserations to the senior B team who narrowly lost to Milltown in the Jack Higgins Cup Final on Sunday in Naas and to the Junior hurlers who lost out to Ratoath in the Special Leinster semi final also on Sunday.

Alan Smith has been appointed as fulltime Sarsfields Coach. In addition to his duties with the club Alan will also be involved in helping to coach the local National Schools.

Man Gets Money For Toiletless Train. 

A German man received $270 compensation for the torture he
endured for not being able to relieve himself for two hours.
The Frankfurt court made the German Railways pay the man $270
for not providing the man an adequate toilet.  The man walked
for two hours throughout the packed train looking for a place to
go to the bathroom.  The toilets had all been locked because
there was no water available for flushing the toilets.  ‘The
plaintiff had to torture himself with his urgent need for two
hours because he could not find a free toilet,’ said the court.
The man finally got to use the one bathroom that was in working
condition, which was kept locked.  The man got access by another
passenger having to pressure the ticket inspector.

True Story

 Bakery for Dogs opens in Paris

An award-winning pastry chef has opened a bakery that caters only for dogs in Paris.  Mon Bon Chien sells bacon biscuits in the shape of a cat and bone-shaped cookies made of foie gras, reports the BBC.

The owner is Harriet Sternstein who moved to Paris from the US with her dog Sophie-Marie.  Sophie-Marie provided the inspiration for the new business for her owner, who decided the best way to make a living was to combine her biggest enthusiasms – pastries and pets.

‘Everything is made in the back of the boutique,’ said Ms Sternstein, ‘Every day, I make 200 to 300 biscuits and special orders are taken on a daily basis.

‘The Parisians come – and the first time they think it’s very funny and they look at it, and buy the ones that they think are the cutest. Then the dogs come back and choose which flavours they like the best.

‘I change flavours, based on what’s going on, I will be creating a special biscuit for Valentine’s Day.’



Checking on the Patient.

A woman telephoned St Mary’s Hospital and asked to speak to Ward E2 as she was enquiring as to the progress of one of the patient’s in that ward. She explained that she wanted to know if the patient was getting better, doing as expected or getting worse.

A staff nurse answered the phone, ‘Hallo, Ward E2. What is the name of the patient and his room number?’
‘He is in bed 1, room 10, ‘came the reply, ‘And his name is Albert Brown.’

‘Could you hold the line for a moment, ‘the nurse asked, ‘While I check his records. Ah, yes, Mr Brown is doing well: blood pressure OK, blood test results appear normal, he’s going to be taken off the heart monitor and if he continues to improve then Doctor Svoboda is going to send him home
at midday.’

‘Oh, that’s super, amazing, I’m so pleased to hear the news; it really is fantastic, thank you so much.’

‘You sound so glad,’replied the nurse, ‘You are so and enthusiastic you must be a close friend or a relative of Mr Brown.’

The man answered, ‘Not exactly, I am Albert Brown in Ward E2, room 10, bed 1. Nobody in here ever tells me anything.’

In case you are wondering, Albert’s day job is a ventriloquist.  this is a strange but true story.

Why Men Don’t Write Advice Columns

Dear Peter

I hope you can help me. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help. When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom with a neighbour making mad passionate love to her. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that he’d been having an affair for the past six months.

I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. I don’t feel I can get through to him anymore.

Can you please help?


Mrs. Sheila Usk

Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburettor float chamber.

I hope this helps.

Best regards

 Genie In A Bottle

A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie. The genie said, ‘OK, OK. You released me from the lamp…yada yada yada!

This is the fourth time this month and I’m getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three of them. You only get one wish!’ The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, ‘I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii but I’m scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?’

The genie laughed and said, ‘That’s impossible. Think of the logistics of that! How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of how much concrete … how much steel! Do you know how many engineers I would have to hire to figure how to do it?  No, think of another wish.’

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish.  Finally, he said, ‘I’ve been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don’t care and that I’m insensitive.  So, I wish that I could understand women… know how they feel inside and what they’re thinking when they give me the silent treatment… know why they’re crying, know what they really want when they say ‘nothing’… know how to make them truly happy.’

The genie paused for a few minutes and then said, ‘You want that bridge with two lanes or four?’

One legged Lag on the Hop

A ONE-legged prisoner escaped — by outpacing THREE able-bodied guards.

Michael Hill, 28, dashed away from a court car park “like a Paralympic sprinter”.

The amputee — who has a false leg — DASHED 200 yards, VAULTED a 5ft wall and two garden fences and VANISHED in a block of flats.

Suspected burglar Hill had been escorted outside to wait for transport after he was remanded in custody.

But guards left him without handcuffs because he was on crutches.

Suddenly, he ditched the supports and fled — leaving the three overweight guards puffing for breath in his wake.

A court security officer, who was too embarrassed to be named, said: “I can’t believe a man with one leg managed to run away. He was a really good actor.”

Hill — disabled in a pitbull attack — fled from Ealing Magistrates Court, West London, on Thursday as he waited to be taken to Wormwood Scrubs jail.

Another guard, who witnessed the drama, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I heard he had a false leg.

“He was like a sprinter in the Paralympics. The guards are fat and smoke too much so they couldn’t catch him.”


Hill, of Greenford, London was charged with a domestic burglary.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Any escape is regrettable. The Prison Service will carry out a formal investigation.”

 Answers to last week’s Brain Teasers.

1 Manhole Covers. Why is it better to have round manhole covers 
than square ones?   [NOTE: This is logical rather than

lateral, but it is a good puzzle which can be solved by lateral 

thinking techniques. It is supposedly  used by a very

well-known software company as an interview question  for 

prospective employees]

Answer: A square manhole cover can be turned and dropped down the 
diagonal of the manhole. A round  manhole cannot be dropped down

the manhole. So for safety and practicality, all manhole covers 

should be round.

2 A man went  to a party and drank some of the punch, then
left early.   Everyone else at the party who drank the punch 

subsequently died of poisoning.  Why did the man not die?

Answer: The poison was in the ice cubes and they had not quite melted yet when
he drank from the punch.

3 A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same 
day of the same year but they were not twins.  How could this be so?

Answer:  They were two of a set of triplets (or quadruplets, etc
