It's the strangest Holy Week ever - whoever would have thought we'd be where we are today! At a time when people are asking: 'Where is God?' - I hope he shows up!

We are all doing our best to beat this thing, and lovely stories abound of acts of kindness, it is bringing out the best in us. Maybe God is showing up!

Even celebrities are doing their bit to lift us - one lady just given the all clear from cancer, was so chuffed to receive a message from Ryan Tubridy. A pal had left a message for the star who promptly made a short video and sent it with all his love. It was just such a nice thing to do.

Well done to whoever it was set the online Quiz at Lucan Sarsfields on Sunday last. There was murder in our house, but it was great crack!

An Post men and women are going the extra mile also. Instead of just popping a letter in the post box of an older person, they will knock on the door to check if everything is ok.

Remember, if there are any announcements you would like broadcast, just contact Mairead at Liffey Sound stationmanager@liffeysoundfm.ie

Don't forget, you can join the Libraries online! Just log on to South Dublin Libraries and follow the online instructions - lots of books, magazines and newspapers at your fingertips!

Society for Old Lucan (SOL) have interesting little snippets on twitter if anyone is interested in the history of the locality.

Where have all the Seagulls gone! Remember the nests in the housing estates from last summer into winter - hope they're gone on a long holiday - nice and peaceful without them.

World Autism Day took place on Thursday 2nd April, and Tadhg and Sean took the opportunity to show off their new Lucan Sarsfields jerseys. The Under 16 Footballers and Hurlers will be sporting these when they take to the field again!

Keep your poems and stories coming! We're running out of religion, sport and schools, as well as other usuals, so drop us a line of what you might like to see in Lucan Newsletter, and root out those old photos now that you have time on your hands!
As the fellow said:
We're knitting it these days!

 

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary

to Anthony and Angela Prizeman

Their 4 daughters had a family celebration planned which unfortunately could not go ahead last weekend and is now on hold until safer times.

We all can't wait to get together with you both and celebrate!

We love you both!
