Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes


Hurling helmet safety

In advance of the 2021 GAA season, players are reminded about the need to check that their equipment is in good condition and meets the required safety standards.


The GAA would like to remind all players at all levels in all Hurling Games and Hurling Practice Sessions it is mandatory for, and the responsibility of, each individual player to wear a helmet with a facial guard that meets the standards set out in IS:355 or other replacement standard as determined by the National Safety Authority of Ireland (NSAI).


All players are advised that in the event of a head injury occurring, if the helmet being worn does not meet the standard or is modified or altered from the original manufactured state, they are not covered under the terms of the GAA Injury Benefit Fund.


The following helmet manufacturers currently provide products which meet the standards set out in IS:355 or other replacement standard as determined by the National Safety Authority of Ireland (NSAI).

  • Atak Sports
  • Azzuri
  • Marc Sports
  • Mycro
  • O’Neills

Dark Blue by Shane Carthy. An inspiration every way... Between winning All Irelands with Dublin and battling through the depths of depression, Shane Carthy's is a fascinating story. Our Healthy Club group organised him to give a talk in the club in 2019 and for those who didn't make it on the night, he has a book coming out next month. He writes about his mental illness and his journey over the last 5 years. And don't forget or if you or a friend are struggling. "A trouble shared is a trouble halved"
