The Charlestown Sarsfields Club was founded in 1888 and is now well into celebrating it`s 133rd year in existence. The club has a long and proud history and tradition in Mayo G.A.A. circles and continues to make its presence felt and punch above its weight on the play fields.
On the playing fields, the Sarsfields have always contended for top honours. The club has won several County Junior and Intermediate Championships in its stellar history. The club has won two county senior leagues in 1995 and 2009 which were great achievements in themselves but the undoubted highlight have been the three county senior championships won in 1902, 2001 and 2009 with the club going on to be crowned Connacht club champions in 2001.
The lift these victories gave the club and community in general cannot be overstated as it paved the way for the next generation of Sarsfields stars with our club in a very healthy state and continuing to compete with honour, distinction and no little success at the highest levels in the county.
The club has over 200 players involved from under-6 up to senior levels with 20 teams participating across the various age categories each year. The annual cost of running our club is in excess of €100,000 & without support from our sponsors, Crean Mosaics & others, club membership, our local lotto & ongoing fundraising efforts the club would simply not be sustainable.
We want to give our players & underage teams the support, enjoyment & coaching that they deserve & in order to do this we need the continued support of our community through club membership as we aspire to continue to drive our club forward.
Our club lotto is the cornerstone of the success & running of our club & we would deeply appreciate if you would support your local club by playing our lotto.
