SARSFIELDS A total of 32 acts have qualified for the semi-finals of Wexford Has Talent after the auditions were held last weekend.

Tickets to the semi-finals which take place on Saturday, January 20, and Saturday, January 27, at 8 p.m. are now on sale from Clayton Whites Hotel at €10 each.

For more information visit or check out the coverage in this week's edition of 'The People', our media partners.

Plans to publish a club newsletter are entirely reliant on the support, or otherwise, of members at this stage. So far, only ten people have indicated their interest in receiving the newsletter, and this clearly isn't a sufficient number to warrant the significant work that will be involved.

Once again, anyone interested in receiving the newsletter is asked to send their own e-mail address to, and please mention Sars newsletter in the subject line.

There was an excellent attendance of adult players in Club Vitae in Clayton Whites Hotel on Saturday to receive their pre-season training plans. Here's hoping for a good year for the Seniors and Juniors who will learn their championship opponents early next month.

Hard luck to the Under-17s who lost away to Rathgarogue-Cushinstown by six points in the O'Loughlin Cup on Sunday.

Best wishes to mentor David Gannon and the Meanscoil Garman players who will take on Duiske College from Graiguenamanagh in the Top Oil South Leinster Schools Junior football 'D' eleven-a-side final in O'Kennedy Park, New Ross, on Thursday at 12 noon.

The school was established ten years ago and this will be their first-ever final, so we wish them well.

Best wishes also to our club members who will be assisting St. Peter's College in the defence of their Leinster Senior football 'A' title at the quarter-final stage against Coláiste Eoin of Stillorgan in Athy on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Congratulations to Simon Kirwan who received his Seana Ghael award at the annual presentation function in the Ferrycarrig Hotel on Sunday.

The winning lotto numbers on January 15 were 3, 8, 14 and 24. There was no jackpot winner, and next week's jackpot is €10,200.


Hard luck to the Under-17 footballers who lost to St. Joseph’s in the last 16 of the Jim Byrne Cup.

All roads lead to the Ashdown Park Hotel on Friday, January 26, for the club’s Strictly Come Dancing semi-final. Tickets are on sale now: €10 for adults, and children’s entry is €5. For more details, phone 087-9770497.
