Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all our Readers! Birdie is really looking forward to the Lucan Parade – hopefully, we’ll get a bit of sunshine for it this year.

Come on Ireland! Let’s put Wales in their place this Saturday – we’ve nothing against the Welsh, but their manager didn’t treat BOD very well a few years ago.
(We don’t hold grudges!)

It will be hot and furious in Croker on Saturday evening as the Dubs take on Tyrone. Best wishes to Lucan man, Darren Gavin – have another great game!

52 Years ago this Tuesday , since the Presentation Sisters arrived to take over the new convent in Lucan. It was on the feast of St. Joseph – hence the name St. Joseph’s Convent. The weather wasn’t much better then, as records show that they arrived amid a ‘shower of Spring snow’!

Congratulations to Peg Smith of Lucan Pitch & Putt Club, was elected to the Office of Patroness of the Pitch and Putt Union of Ireland, in recognition of all her hard work over the years. Well done, Peg!

Great work ongoing on footpaths in Hillcrest these days, though much of the barriers got blown around with Storm Gareth this past week.
