Team News

AFL1 Naomh Mearnóg 1-8 Lucan Sarsfields 0-16. 


The Senior Footballers extended their winning streak to four games with a 0-16 to 1-8 victory over Naomh Mearnóg in Portmarnock on Saturday evening. Scorer in chief on the evening was Conor Gallagher whose left foot produced points from both frees and open play. Other polished performances came from CJ Smith and Darren Gavin as Dave Cullen's side turn their attention to a top of the table clash with Na Fianna in the 12th Lock in two weeks’ time.

AFL11 South Ballyboden 1-1 Lucan Sarsfields 3-24

On a bright but breezy day this Lucan team rocked up to Ballycullen full of attitude and looking to get a win in the bag. Before the whistle was even blown we had occasion to call an ambulance after a particularly nasty injury to one of the forwards during warm up. This young team were in fighting form and they went hard on the opposition from the get go. Point after point appeared and it became apparent that this Lucan team were hungry for the 2 points. Scores came from Eleven players and the remaining four that didn’t score are definitely being benched in the next game (I joke)

Yes the teams were unevenly matched but it was a fair game that didn’t reflect the final score line. Jack McCarthy had a stormer of a game scoring 8 points and a big welcome back to Dec Lawlor after a lengthy injury who went on to score 2 goals today. Get well wishes to Adam Smith. We won’t mention who tripped you up!

Squad: Ian Brogan, Eoin Power, Jake Dunne, Neil O’Leary, Daraigh Quinn, Ian Crowley 0-1, Jake Mooney 0-1 , Jack McCarthy 0-8, Mark Gormley, Josh Brant 0-2, Charlie Caseley 1-2, Ryan Brant 0-1 , Shaun Keegan 0-1 , Kevin O’Reilly 0-1, Harry Day 0-3 , Adam Smith, Declan Lawlor 2-0, Ciaran O’Brien 0-4, Cian Duffy.

Leinster Senior League v Na Fianna (Meath)


Lucan Senior Camogie team played in the semi-final of Leinster Senior League on Friday night at 12th Lock against Na Fianna of Meath. Na Fianna were Meath Senior Champions and in a County Final in the two proceeding years so were coming to Lucan with high expectations. Lucan got off to the perfect start with a powerfully struck shot from Aoife McKearney hitting the back of the net and she followed that up with two quick points. Phoebe Shannon slotted over a free and Orla Beagan came from distance to tag on another excellent point before Na Fianna had even settled into the game. Na Fianna really struggled to cope with the pace, strength and skill of the Lucan defenders and mid-field. They did manage a goal, really against the run of play, and managed another point late on in the half, but Aoife McKearney was getting fed excellent passes and fired in another goal plus three more wonderful points before the break. Add to that Phoebe Shannon’s scores, one from a free and one from play, and Lucan were left very comfortable at the break 2-9 to 1-1 in the lead.

The only issues for Lucan were the worrying injuries to Jessie McClelland and Emer Keenan, which forced both from the field and both had played so well. Hopefully they get back to us very soon.

Aoife McKearney continued her superb form in the second half, popping over another point, only to also pick up an injury. Lucan did let the intensity drop, maybe feeling that the job was done and with the injury list mounting and so many changes to personnel and positions occurring. Anna Breen moved to the inside line and tagged on a point, which was followed by points from Orla Sadlier, a second from Orla Beagan, a hard-fought point from Faye Murphy plus a bullet from Ali Dunne. During this time Na Fianna had managed four points from play and finished with two goals, one the last puck of the game, to make the final score look respectable, but, in truth, Lucan were the far superior team throughout.

Final Score; Lucan 2-15 Na Fianna 3-4

The Final will be in Abbottstown on Sunday 10th April. Time and opposition yet to be determined.

Scorers: Aoife McKearney 2-6, Orla Beagan 0-2, Phoebe Shannon 0-3 (2 frees), Orla Sadlier 0-1, Faye Murphy 0-1, Anna Breen 0-1, Ali Dunne 0-1.

Squad: Amy Gorman, Rebecca Flanagan, Avril Quinn, Claire Meaney, Hannah Brady, Laura Sharkey, Rachel Leonard, Orla Beagan, Emma O’Brien, Aoife McKearney, Jessie McClelland, Anna Breen, Faye Murphy, Emer Keenan, Phoebe Shannon.

Subs: Ali Dunne (20 mins for Jessie McClelland), Orla Sadlier (25 mins for Emer Keenan), Millie Reid (30 mins for Rachel Leonard), Anna Cuffe (40 mins for Hannah Brady), Rachel Boyhan (42 mins for Claire Meaney), Aoife Byrne (45 mins for Avril Quinn), Lily Rooney (45 mins for Phoebe Shannon), Aisling Ní Ruairc (50 mins for Amy Gorman),

Juvenile Section / Coiste na nÓg:


Our #sarsstars on duty this week as Dublin Minors David Mulqueen, Adam Rock and Jamie Smith beat Laois. Dublin U16 Camogie Ladies travelling to Birr to face Offaly in the second round of their championship, Lucan represented well with four starters and one sub, Sadhbh Ní Bhuachalla, Chloe O'Shea, Caoimhe Costello, Mia Farrell, Shauna Rooney.


U11 Camogie 


Half of the girls travelled to Stillorgan to play Kilmacud Crokes. We were well received and the teams partook in two well contested matches. We were very impressed with their hooking and blocking and great team playing. The other half of the girls stayed at home and welcomed St Brigid's, again very evenly matched groups and all the girls got stuck in, and showed off all the skills they had been practicing at training.


U8 Camogie vs Castleknock


This week it was the clash of ash as it was time to don the helmets and get the hurls in hand and put that new ash to the test. A skillful game to learn no doubt but with guidance and encouragement from the U8 mentors the girls were sure to make a good account of themselves in their first camogie match against their week old rivals Castleknock who they had just done battle with in the football. Despite the fact at this stage it’s all ground hurling it did not leave spectators wanting, with great tackles, hustling for the ball, striking and blocking on display from all the girls. The girls displayed a hunger and enthusiasm for the game that was quite remarkable at U8 level. Most importantly the girls had fun, they respected each other and the opposition, and gave praise to one another which is core to the philosophy of this U8 team. It is with thanks to the parents bringing the girls training each week that come match day they have the ability to not just show up to the game but really participate and contribute to the matches in a meaningful way. Onwards and upwards

U11 Boys Hurling  


One of our U11 Boys teams visited Crumlin in Pearse Park for a hurling match. The first half was very even with only a single score separating the teams, but unfortunately, some of Crumlin's bigger players imposed themselves on the match in the second half and hit several scores against us, while keeping us to a single, well taken, point. We battled well, displaying great hurling and attitude until the end. It was a tough game against strong opposition and we will learn from it.
