Daire Newcombe fired over a late point on Saturday evening to earn Lucan Sarsfields a 0-12 to 0-12 draw with Ballyboden St Enda’s. While the win would have been preferred, a draw against the 2020 Dublin SFC beaten finalists is perfectly acceptable. June 26th will see Lucan take on St Judes, who were drawn in the same group for the Go-Ahead Dublin Senior Football Championship, along with Round Tower Lusk and St Oliver Plunkets.
In the Go-Ahead Dublin Senior Hurling Championship draw, Lucan were also drawn in the same group as St Judes, with Setanta and St Vincents completing the group.

Healthy Club Notes
Those who pursue outdoor sport and leisure are a high risk group for the development of skin cancer, as they spend long periods of time outdoors. Both occasional and often sun exposure can be harmful. Exposure causing sunburn is the most damaging but frequent non burning exposures also significantly increase the risk of skin cancer. This risk can be reduced by following the SunSmart steps to protect the skin.
Be SunSmart and protect your skin from the sun
Most people living in Ireland have fair skin, the type which burns easily and tans poorly, so are at high risk of UV damage and skin cancer. Exposure to UV radiation during childhood is particularly harmful so protecting skin during childhood is extremely important.
Know the UV index: When the UV index is 3 or above you need to protect your skin. In Ireland, the UV index is usually 3 or above from April to September, even when it is cloudy. Stay safe by limiting time in the sun when UV is strongest, typically between the hours of 11am to 3pm. Check the UV index on the Met Eireann website
Slip on clothing: Cover skin as much as possible, wear long sleeves, collared t-shirts, clothes made from close-woven material that does not allow sunlight through.
Slop on broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen: Apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30+ for adults and 50+ for children, with high UVA protection and water-resistant. Reapply regularly. No sunscreen can provide 100% protection, it should be used alongside other protective measures such as clothing and shade.
Slap on a wide-brimmed hat: Protect your face, ears and neck.
Seek shade: Sit in the cover of trees to avoid direct sunlight. Use a sunshade on your buggy or pram. Keep babies and children out of direct sunlight.
Slide on sunglasses: Guard your eyes against harm by wearing sunglasses with UV protection.
Do not deliberately try to get a suntan. Avoid getting a sunburn. Never use a sunbed.

The second in our 2021 series of webinars on men's health took place on June 16th, with special guest and Mayo GAA legend David Brady on to tell us what he learned about connecting with men during COVID. We also have a range of very experienced speakers who will share their learning on engaging men and supporting their health and wellbeing. You can see the previous webinar from April 'Why Men's Health?' here: https://bit.ly/3umyAY0 . Men's Health Week is an opportunity to focus on the wellbeing of men and boys and the key theme in 2021 is encouraging everyone to begin the process of 'MAKING THE CONNECTIONS' and to 'CHECK IN, CHECK UP, CHECK IT OUT'. This call to action speaks to the key priority following the impact of COVID-19 and the need for us all to rebuild and nourish our networks and support structures. Go to mhfi.org for more information. We would be delighted if you could join us on the day and please feel free to share this invite with your colleagues and networks. #MensHealthWeek #CheckItOut
