LUCAN SARSFIELDS

Disappointment for our Senior Hurlers last weekend, losing to Faughs away, however they followed that up with hard fought draw vs St Vincents on Wednesday night which edges them away from the bottom of the league and might be crucial in the end. Jnr B and A hurlers had good wins on Monday and Tuesday night.

Senior Footballers look to get their push for a league semi-final spot back on track as they take on Thomas Davies at home this Saturday at 18:30. Inters are away to Balinteer on Sunday morning.

Jnr B Ladies Footballers continue their championship campaign on Wednesday night at home vs St Oliver Plunketts at 7:30. Support appreciated.

Lots of Lucan players on Dublin Camogie duty last week:
Seniors (Ali Twomey, Mairi Moynihan, Emma Flanagan and Orla Beagan) drew with Tipperary and have qualified for the Quarter Final where the play Galway down in Cork. Best of luck to them.

Premiers (Emma O’Flynn and Emer Keenan) beat Roscommon and made it two from two and qualified for the semi-final.

16A (Ellen Dunphy, Aoife Coffey, Ali Dunne and Phoebe Shannon) unfortunately lost to Cork.

16B (Laura Sharkey and Caitlin Maguire) drew with Cork. Hard luck to Siofra Byrne, Aoife Mahon, Jessie McClelland and Laura Quinn who were part of the Dublin minor camogie team who lost out to Wexford in the Leinster semi-final
