Lucan Sarsfields Club GAA Notes Monday 11th June
June 11, 2018
It was all action in Galway over the weekend with our U14 hurlers representing the club marvellously. They went out at the Quarter final stage at the hands of beaten finalists Durlas Óg in the national Féile. A brilliant weekend was had and the players, management and supporters did the club proud.
Well done to Kelly Cup winners Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada. A great turnout with 8 teams putting on fine performances, where the final was contested by Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada and last years’ winner Scoil Aine. Well done to all involved.
A great one point win for our Senior footballers vs Ballyboden, of Wednesday night, and it was fantastic to see the U12 boys up supporting the team and warming up with them, some say it was the extra kick the lads needed!. Thanks to Robbie O’Connell and his management team for organising this week’s event. A fantastic initiative and well done to all for making it happen. Unfortunately our Jnr A ladies footballers lost away to Raheny in Championship 4-09 to 3-14 it finished. 2 out of 3 isn’t bad and a win this Wednesday vs Castleknock will get them out of the Group. Support very much appreciate, 7.30pm in the 12th Lock.
A great start for Dublin Senior Camogie in their Championship, beating Offaly at home, well done to Mairi, Emma, Orla and Ali. Well done also to Ciaran Dowling, Paul Crummey and Fintan Clandillon with Dublin U21 hurlers that beat Carlow and now advance to Leinster quarter-final vs Westmeath. Well done to Ciaran Smith (pictured with U11 football Cian Gavin) who lined out at corner back for the Dublin U20s that beat Westmeath in the 2nd round of Leinster round robin. Congratulations to Ella Lacey from who came third in the Féile skills competition. Hard luck to Chris and Johnny who lost out to Galway by a point, finishing the season will a lot of positives.
Well done to all the Lucan schools who were competing in the Cumann na Bunscol finals last week. Great performances all round and lots of coverage of past and present stars!

Juvenile Football Report
There was no official action in either the CCC1 or CCC2 competitions this week. Best of luck to all of the players who are currently sitting their exams.
However, the current instalment of juvenile football teams attending our senior league matches took place on Wednesday night. This time it was the U-12s turn to attend the match. They got some warm-up done on the senior pitch and got to take a picture with the senior team before the match. They then got some match time at half time in the actual league game. The boys really enjoyed the experience and both them and the parents who attended got see a tremendous contest in which Lucan came out on top in an enthralling game versus Ballyboden St. Endas on a score line of 2-17 to 1-19. Thanks to Robbie O’Connell and his management team for organising the event which saw up to 40 players attend.
