High Moss Sarsfields Gaelic Football Club (Irish: CLG Sáirséiligh na Móinte Arda) is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Derrytrasna, County Armagh, Northern Ireland. In addition to having numerous Gaelic football teams it is also a centre for Ladies' Gaelic football and other sports and activities. Sarsfields currently play in the Armagh Senior Football Championship and other Armagh GAA competitions.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1926[1] and its highest achievement to date came in 1990, when it won the county Senior Football Championship, defeating Armagh Harps 0-09 to 0-06. It reached the final again in 1992, losing to Pearse Óg.[2]

In 2007 the Men's Senior team was promoted to Division 2; the Ladies' team also won promotion. This returned the Senior team to Division One of the All-County League. In 2010, in their second season back in Division One, the Sarsfields lifted the Armagh Intermediate Football Championship title.[3] Following a successful run in the IFC against Shane O'Neill's, Keady and Silverbridge, the Hoops defeated South Armagh side Cullaville Blues at Crossmaglen on October 3; Sarsfields 1-15, Cullaville 0-11. Thomas McAlinden struck a goal within the opening 13 seconds of the game, possibly the quickest goal in any Armagh Championship Final. The Atty Hearty cup was lifted by captain Mark Reynolds.
