U13 Hurling League Division 5 Champions 05/11/2022, Lucan Sarsfields B 8-15 Craobh Chiarán 0-1 

The final game of the U13 Hurling league division 5 was played on the juvenile pitch against Craobh Chiarain on Saturday 5th November. On the day the U13B team were too strong for the visiting team on a perfect November afternoon at the club, and Lucan ran out convincing winners. The win secured the team as winners of the U13 Hurling league division 5.

Throughout the league the team lost just one match in a 10 team league and went on to become outright champions of Division 5 ahead of rivals Beann Eadair and Kilmacud B. The standout game of the year was away to Kilmacud Crokes on the 15th of October in which the team showed incredible skill, grit and determination in strong wind and hail, to win by 4 points.

Congratulation to all the lads, and thanks to all the mentors and parent for their ongoing support.

Div 10 North, Promotion Play-off AGP3 6th November Lucan Sarsfields 3-18 St Finians Swords 0-2 


Having finished second in the league following nine wins, one draw and a one-point defeat, Lucan had home advantage in this promotion playoff. Just before throw-in, a driving wind accompanied by a heavy shower had both teams diving for any available cover. Losing the toss and playing against the wind, Lucan were slow to settle in the game and did not take advantage of early opportunities. Eight minutes passed before Jake Mooney opened the scoring. Finan Breen added a second before a Paul Keegan brace opened a little daylight with 20 minutes elapsed. Two points from Finians then got them off the mark. Mooney put over a second score before the interval but with five wides each, the game felt even enough. The second half started in a similar fashion to the first with no activity on the scoreboard. A Liam O'Connor free from close range was the catalyst and Lucan finally started to click. Oisin O'Brien put over four in a row with some quality strikes but these were interrupted by Finians hitting the post when a goal looked on. Finian's lost some of their mojo with that miss and Lucan went on to take full advantage. Paraic Kelly found the net twice with a lively Evan Hollowed also converting. Shaun Keegan scored two points and O'Brien added another brace. Breen was now cleaning up a lot of ball around the middle and was rewarded by an excellent score from wide on the right. Liam Farrell also got in on the act and O'Connor completed the scoring with the full time whistle bringing some welcome respite for Finians. Cathal Doody displayed very assured handling in goals when called upon. Wingbacks, Rob Moloney and Daragh Reid were very secure and cut off a number of attacks. Cathal Shanahan was probably the hardest working player on the field in the middle of the park. All of the forwards did well plus the subs contributed 3-2 to show the depth developed in the squad. Promotion was a fitting reward for this group who have advanced measurably from last year. Roll on 2023!

U17A Football Championship Semi-final: Lucan Sarsfields 1-15 Tempelogue Synge Street 3-8, 12th Lock, 6/11/2022

Lucan U17A demonstrated their resolve and spirit by returning to winning ways following last week’s defeat in the Hurling championship final. This match had equal drama and was very exciting, Lucan played with 14 men for most of the game following an unfortunate dismissal in the first half, but this never stopped our lads from competing eventually gathering momentum and closing the gaps by taking their points. The old saying take your points and the goals will come, was proven true with some drama in the final few minutes as Lucan, with the last kick of the game scoring a fabulous goal to take the spoils from a great game. We look forward to the final in a couple of weeks time.
