The death has occurred in Bournemouth of Albert Lowe, formerly of Lucan. The Lowe family lived in the Station House in Coldblow which was one of the railway stations that serviced Lucan.


Ann McDonald R.I.P.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Ann who passed away peacefully in Lourdes on Sunday last.
Ann was in regular contact with Lucan Newsletter over the years in various capacities, most recently as P.R.O. of Esker Friends of the Elderly.
May she rest in peace.




7th Anniversary – 13th September
It happens without warning
Time and time again
I go along and join the flow
But still remember when
You were there to share it all
That made it all worthwhile
The memories keep flooding back
And once again I smile
Then reality returns to me
And once again, you're gone
If only this little dream
I have could simply just go on.
Missed by your loving wife, Mary

A Dad is a special gift, one you think will stay
You never think the time will come
when he is called away
You let us quietly without a fuss
And broke the hearts of all of us
God took your hand and whispered low
Come with me Dad it's time to go.
Sadly missed by your sons Peter, John, Michael and Patrick and Daughters-in-law Debbie, Carol, Sara and Karen

Grandad, If we could write a story
It would be the greatest ever told
Of a kind and loving Grandad
Who had a heart of gold
We could write a million pages
But still be unable to say
How much we love and miss him every single day
We will remember all he taught us
We will be hurt but won't be sad
Cause he will send us down the answers
And always be our Grandad.
Lots of love from your grandchildren Niamh, Karla, Aine, Caitlin, Conor, Erin and Saoirse

5th Anniversary – 20th September
Sadly missed along life’s way
Quietly remembered every day
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts you are always there
We think of you in silence and often speak you name
Our special memories of you dad in our picture frames
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
Love always, your children Ken, Linda, Elaine and Anne Marie, extended family

Grandad, You’re thought about so often in loving memory
For you were all the special things
A Grandad ought to be
We have all missed you being here
Since you went away
But the happiness you brought us
Is remembered every day
So may you find gentle peace in your eternal rest
We will always love you Grandad
You really were the best.
Love always, your grandchildren Richard, Katie, Jack and Ava
