We are delighted to announce that Kathleen Roche has agreed to continue to serve Lucan Sarsfields as Club President during 2021. With 2020 behind us we hope that 2021 will allow Kathleen much more opportunities to represent us proudly as she has done over many years as a leader of many fundraising initiatives.

Club Membership
Club Members are reminded that membership for 2021 is now due. We expect that training and games will resume very quickly when restrictions are lifted, and to make sure that all our mentors and players are covered by the insurance schemes, we need to register everyone on the new Foireann system, and this can only be done when membership is renewed/taken out. For all queries regarding membership, please contact

As we will be using the ClubForce App to manage our return-to-play questionnaires and for attendance tracking, all members are urged to download the app from the Google Play or Apple App store. Sign in using the same username and password that you use to renew your membership and make Lucan Sarsfields GAA your favourite club!

Coaching Forum
At 6:30pm on Friday 26th we are hosting a coaches forum facilitated by Club GPO David Moran. This will be a VERY informal event for mentors within our club with no preset agenda. Registration in advance is required and closes at 3pm on Friday.

The Gaelic Games family have launched 'Be Ready to Play', a Coaching and Sport Science programme in association with UPMC, official healthcare partner of the GAA and GPA, that will be delivered via webinars, website programmes, instructional videos and live online sessions. The programme is a holistic coaching and performance plan that will be of great benefit to all club coaches and players, male, female, adult, and youth alike. It will help them return to training post-COVID-19 in a way that will hopefully increase enjoyment, performance, and participation, while simultaneously reducing the risk of injury.
