Lucan Sarsfield’s Club Notes 


There will be a table quiz in the clubhouse on the 26th of April in Aid of the Elizabeth McNicholas Fund. We are encouraging our members and supporters to get involved in this event and help raise the much-needed funds. Read more about Elizabeth’s story below: 

Elizabeth Mc Nicholas is a young person from Lucan living with severe brain and spinal injuries. She is a full-time wheelchair user with complex medical needs and severe neuropathic pain. Elizabeth was a camogie player before her illness, and now struggles to get some normality back into her life. She was first diagnosed with her illness in her Leaving Cert year in Coláiste Cois Life. She went on to do Domestic Science teacher-training in St. Angela's College, Sligo, but unfortunately, she had to pull out of that course. 

In 2018, Elizabeth spent three months in a hospital in Istanbul, to undergo a series of extremely major lifesaving and life-changing surgeries. These surgeries gave Elizabeth some hope to get her life back to normal, and since then, she has been working hard to adapt to her new life and to regain some of the functions and abilities that she lost over the years. 

     Due to the complex nature of Elizabeth's condition, she requires ongoing specialist neurorehabilitation which is not available to her in Ireland. During the past two Summers, Elizabeth has undergone neurorehabilitation at Neurokinex Gatwick in the UK, making significant strides in her recovery, such as learning to sit upright unaided and regaining better function in her right arm.  

Elizabeth hopes to return to Neurokinex Gatwick for further intensive neurorehabilitation over the coming months, but this therapy does not come cheap. Fundraising continues to facilitate access to this vital treatment for Elizabeth, to give her the chance she deserves. 

     Please support Elizabeth's cause by donating online at: . You can also visit the Team Elizabeth Page on Facebook for full updates on the campaign:  Thank you for your continued support.
