Well done to Lucan’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee , and to all who braved the terrible weather to take part or look on in this year’s event – when the going gets tough............






The Grand Slam in the Six Nations gave us a great lift on the same day, and it looked just as bad there weather wise!

Hard to believe the amount of snow which fell the following day – enough is enough!

Have you heard? Evelyn Cusack is now in charge of Ireland’s weather! A favourite of many, Birdie recalls an incident where a man from Galway accused her of always giving the ‘bad weather from the West’! Hope she writes a book!

Spring forward! Don’t forget to change your clocks this Sunday morning! We lose an hour, but hopefully at last, Spring has arrived! We’re not having any of that snow nonsense for Easter!

Good Friday with a difference looming! Between the pubs opening and the day being designated as clean-up day among other things, there won’t be much time for Himself!


A Parish Journey......

It might have been cold outside, but inside the Spa Hotel on St. Patrick’s Eve, A Parish Journey by Maria Murphy was warmly received by a full house.


Pictured at the launch are Mayor Paul Gogarty, Dr Rose Dolan (Dept. Education, NUIM), Maria Murphy, and Fr. John Hassett.

With 150 pages of facts, stories and lots of photos, it leaves parishioners in no doubt as to whom they are!

The story of St. Patrick’s - Esker, Dodsboro and Adamstown will also be of interest to the other Lucan parishes, with many familiar faces from days of old.

Congratulations Maria, on a job very well done – the ‘job’ was given to her by Fr John with the proviso that it would be the first book!!!

A Parish Journey - the story of St Patrick's Esker Dodsboro Adamstown
will be on Sale from St Patrick's Parish Office, Price €10
• Monday-Friday 10am - 12 noon
• Saturday-Sunday - After all Masses.

Think of this book as a selection box at Easter – lots of things to pick from!


Best Wishes

To Grace Dalton in the Irish Dancing World Championships in Glasgow
