Last weekend Lucan Sarsfields played host to Division 1 of Dublin Camogie Féile. Success is an understatement, as congratulatory messages came from several clubs (those that lost!), testament to the work of coordinator Eoghan O’Shea and the whole team.

On the field the B team were in Naomh Olaf but unfortunately failed to progress, while the A’s, from the comfort of home, set themselves up for a Sunday final against Ballyboden which the won with a 10-point margin.
