Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes
March 31, 2021
Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club suffered a huge loss on Saturday March 27, when Trustee, Anna Carton passed away. Anna’s involvement in the club from the time she moved to Lucan in the mid-seventies can only be described as phenomenal. Many of the people spoken to this week have told of her hard work and diligence in whatever task she undertook on behalf of the club, nothing was too much trouble for her; whether organising social events, refreshments, draws and raffles or the Céilí in the old clubhouse. Awarded Club Person of the year in 1994, Anna also served as treasurer on the Club Executive for seven years, it is said that she could account for every single penny, and was instrumental in the organisation of the Millennium Draw which raised over £300K towards the construction of our current clubhouse.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis
Our condolences to Annas family, husband Liam, daughter Tara, sons Mark and Shane and to the Mescall family, sister Margaret, brothers, Eddie, Pat, Martin, Frank and Gerard, on the untimely passing of Anna. Anna was a staunch and loyal supporter of the club, she played a major role in many club activities, from social committees, fundraising, served on the executive and while not a golfer, spent whole days registering teams and collecting fees at the Golf Classics. Anna did all this without question; and will be forever missed by all in Lucan Sarsfields.
We are all greatly saddened to hear of Anna’s passing. A passionate supporter of Lucan Sarsfields, she did exceptional voluntary work for many years on behalf of the Club, as both Club Treasurer and, more recently, as Club Trustee. She was a lady of many talents, no more so than in Irish dancing, in which she regularly participated at the Céilí in the old clubhouse with her dancing partner, Joan Molloy. It’s no surprise that, as a native of the Banner county, she specialised in the Siege of Ennis and the Clare Set. All of us amateurs learned a lot from just watching Anna and Joan! Off the dance-floor, she was quite reserved, never seeking the limelight, but working very effectively for the Club and getting great enjoyment from it. Both Anna and Liam gave so much to Lucan Sarsfields and have contributed hugely to the great Club and great camaraderie we enjoy today.
Covid-19 Update from Club Chairperson, Colm Farrell. So we finally have some good news. U18 and under can return to non-contact training from April 26th!! It's been a long wait but at least we have this to look forward to. Hopefully, a return to training for Adult teams is not too far behind the April 26th date. Return to play for all should follow by mid-summer. Our club remains closed, but when we do reopen, I'm sure all of you will be impressed with the work that has been completed in the clubhouse by our team of volunteers! Let's look forward to a return to play in the summer and hopefully as things open up further later in the year, we can all look forward to sitting, in our newly refurbished bar discussing the days games over a warm cup of tea, or a nice cold beverage!
As we prepare to return to training, a reminder to all that club membership is open for renewal; for Insurance purposes, membership needs to be renewed for all mentors and players prior to returning to training.
