Spring is sprung
De grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies is.
De little boid is on the wing, but that’s absoid!
De wing is on de little boid!
(Spring in the Bronx)

Spring certainly has sprung in the last week, and it’s good to see everyone’s spirits lifted with the nice bright days.
Hard to believe that the 1st of March is less than a week away!

Big weekend in sport coming up!
Dublin footballers take on Mayo, and Ireland’s men in green will hopefully see off Wales in the Six Nations!

Luas to Lucan! Not before 2027! There’ll be a lot of water under the bridge by then - wonder will any of us be around!

Lucan Demesne is being coloured in these days with all sorts of wild flowers – a reader came across this pretty little thing –

Birdie

It is the Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria) has bright yellow flowers similar to buttercup but more open, with heart-shaped leaves. Found along the pathways and grassy areas, it belongs to the same family as Common and Creeping Buttercup.

Please keep your dog on a leash when walking in any parklands – we must be considerate of everyone and everything!

 

Greetings

Congratulations to Morgan and Irene on the birth of their son Miles, a brother for Holly.

And

Happy 2nd Birthday to Scott
