Last Saturday the greatest Dublin football team ever , won a historic victory over their rivals an excellent Kerry team to claim the first ever 5 in a row All Ireland football final victory. It took 2 matches to separate them.
We are as proud of their achievement as it is possible to be, they have set the standard high, and shown a wonderful example to all involved in sports. Up the Dubs!
Lucan Sarsfields were well represented for the Ladies GAA football Ken Robinson (strength and conditioning coach) Abby Shiels and Paul Casey (defense coach) with the Brendan Martin Cup following the 3 in a row win last Sunday over Galway. Congrats.
Liffey Descent Last Saturday in the beautiful Autumn sunshine the Liffey Descent canoe race on the Liffey passed through Lucan in a splash of bright colours and excitement as each canoe strove to stay afloat and pass their rivals whenever possible.
A large crowd were gathered on the weir and other promising vantage points to cheer on the canoeists in this popular race which has become an annual attraction since the first Liffey Descent was run just 60 years ago, in 1959.
To Annette and Tony Cusack on the birth of their grandson Max.
