Tribute to Jack Shannon. “I had the privilege of coaching Jack from nursery to under 16 football. He was a smashing lad and underneath that fine mop of red hair was a great smile every time. He developed as a player and always gave a huge effort for his team and was hugely popular with his team mates as his dry sense of humour and work rate made him a person that you couldn’t but like. His Dad, Joe, and Mam, Caroline, were always at matches supporting the various teams and our thoughts and prayers are with them and Dylan, Zoe and Phoebe at this difficult time. May he rest in peace.” – Ken Robinson

Thank You to our Club Lotto Sponsors: The scheme was first launched in September, 2001. Up to that time, the weekly lotto tickets just had prize details etc. printed on the ticket and stub.
The first advertisers in for our Club Lotto in 2001 were: De Jay Royale security alarms; Lombard & Ulster Bank; Eaton, Dowd & Associates; Pat Toolan, Bookmaker, and The Foxhunter. Over the years, we have over 50 local businesses, companies and individuals sponsor the Lucan Sarsfields Weekly Lotto. Their loyal sponsorship was a huge support to the expanding Club and for that we will always be grateful.
Now in its twentieth year, this scheme is still going strong. We are fortunate that Dual Printing Ltd., our present ticket printer, has designed and printed all of the weekly Lotto tickets very professionally in that period at a very competitive rate. Our twelve sponsors this year are: Matt Reilly Autoparts, since 2004 - Lucan Village Pharmacy (2006) - Newcastle Golf Centre (2006) - Diamond & Gem Jewellers (2006) - John Ryan, Accountant (2008) - Henley Forklift Group (2010) - O'Grady's Hearing Care Services (2012) - Feargal McCarthy, Painter & Decorator (2016) ) - Dual Printing Ltd. (2018) - Clandillon Motors (2018- DJ Engineering Ltd. (2020) - Griffeen Bathrooms (2020)
The sponsors interest in, and commitment to, Lucan Sarsfields is indicative of the continuous goodwill shown to the Club for the tremendous work they do on a voluntary basis to promote Gaelic Games and healthy lifestyles in the expanding local community. We applaud the above long-term sponsors for their loyalty and commitment to Lucan Sarsfields. We encourage Club members to support these sponsors in whatever way possible. In doing so, we can implement and fulfil the Irish motto: “Ní neart go cur le Chéile!”
