Massive Congratulations to Captain Emer Keenan, Emma O’Flynn and the management and squad of the Dublin Premier Camogie team on securing the All-Ireland on Sunday, we look forward to welcoming the Cup back to Lucan Sarsfields. Next up is the Dublin Ladies Senior football team and we wish Ken Robinson and Paul Casey and the rest of the management and squad luck as they take on Cork this weekend. A huge group of Lucan supporters are heading in, thanks to Paddy Lyons for organising and let’s hope they witness the 2-in-row.

Mixed results for our Juveniles in Championship last week– 16B ladies football lost out to a strong Na Fianna by 3 points, however 14B the following night had a super win to over Castleknock A to make it two from two in Championship. Unfortunately Minor A, 15A+B and 13B all lost over the weekend.

Well done to both u13A &B hurling teams last Thursday evening the u13a team had a good win over Ballyboden. The lads had a slow start but finished well with a 5-8 to 2-7 win to maintain a 2nd place in their Division 1 league. The U13B hurlers had a great win over Div 4 leaders Maurs in their last league game with a scoreline of 3-8 to 0-3. On Sunday morning in O'Toole Park saw the commencement of the u13 hurling Dublin development squads. We had 6 players representing the club. The best of luck to Sean Langton, Daragh Lyons, Cathal Kennedy, Ryan Clancy, Daragh Meehan and Daragh O'Toole in their trials.

14A Hurling had a good win and can secure the league title by beating Kilmacud Crokes in their next game, on the 22 September away. 14B hurling are also in contention for league honours and got a walkover from St. Vincent’s last weekend. Disappointment for our U16A footballers in Championship, a big win for the 16B though, Full Juvenile football report available on our website.
