IMPORTANT notice for male players, the County Board have informed us that insurance cover for training and matches is strictly limited to fully paid up club members.
"The GAA membership year runs from January 1st – December 31st. It is compulsory that playing members and mentors are registered before resuming training or participating in games. If an injury claim is notified to DWF Claims and the claimant is not in the membership system at the date of his claim or is registered after the injury date, the claim will be declined. Claims for unregistered members will be declined as the GAA Injury Benefit Fund is in place to benefit registered members only."
Therefore all players who have returned to training need to ensure to register now.
Our Condolences to the Doyle family on the passing of Richard, father of Richie, (senior hurling management team). May he rest in peace

Adult Hurling: Having considered the numbers of adult hurling players in the club and the numbers coming through from minor level, we have decided to enter an additional adult hurling team this year. We will now have 4 teams competing in the Dublin adult hurling leagues and championships. If there are any former players, or any hurlers in the area that have not played with Lucan Sarsfields previously, who might like to come back to the game and get involved with this fourth team, we would be delighted to hear from you. Open to all ages from 18 upwards, and to “social” hurlers as well as more committed players.
Also, if anyone might be interested in getting involved with the running of the team, please let us know. All enquiries to Directors of Hurling Vincent O’Connor (087 2075835) or Paul Stapleton (087 2058572).
