An exciting weekend of Feile na Gael culminated in both of our Hurling teams running out in Finals in Parnell Park on Sunday. Congrats to the U14Bs (pictured above) on their win in Div6 and commiserations to the U14As on missing out on the Div 1 title. Both team managements would like to extend a big thanks to all who game out to support them at any stage over the weekend.
The club hosted both Feile na Peil and Feile na Gael groups and Semi-finals over the last few weeks and we would like to extend a big thank you to all who helped out in providing help, catering etc and in particular to the team managers/mentors, our respective coordinators Robbie Breen and Tommy Flannery and Gerry McNamara for having the pitches/grounds in perfect condition. Both occasions showed the club in a very positive light and based on the thank you messages we have received from other clubs were well appreciated.
Another four Lucan girls made their Intercounty Debut this weekend, beating Kilkenny 0-0 to Dublin 4 -3 in Kilkenny last Saturday. Emma Sweeney, Tara O’Connor, Jessica McLlelland Sarah Prendergast..
A special mention also for the Team Manager – our own – Joe Leonard.
Under 8 Camogie v N Maur's & N Barrogs
On a rare hot sunny day our under 8's played only their third game away in Rush against two very strong teams.
With Communions now in full flow Naomh Maur had to field a lot of their under 9 girls but this did not make any difference as our girls battled well and showed they are a match for anyone with 3 wins, 3 draws & 3 close defeats.
One of the game's that stood out was when one of our teams were four goals down at half time but came back fighting in the second half to pull off an outstanding draw against the odds! (even at this early stage of their short careers there's a never say die attitude instilled in all these girls which bodes well for the future of Lucan camogie.
The U10 girls footballers had another tough 4 matches against Na Fianna Blue on Saturday evening at a showery Mobhi Road. Our teams were a little depleted due to clashes with communions in Lucan but the girls acquitted themselves very well. The games were well contested with some fine displays of skills on offer from good tackling to effective blocking. The final results may have not been in our favour but the girls fought hard and kept going to the final whistle. The girls are continuing to improve and are a credit to Lucan Sarsfields. Thanks to all the supporters who travelled to watch the girls play. Thanks to Rory for refereeing two of the games.
Looking forward to our next match away on Saturday 25th against Clan Na Gael, meeting at the Deadmans Car park at 16:10
