Blue with the cold!
Birdie has had a busy week, what with the Parade and the Presentation 150th!
It was great to see people turn out in such great numbers for both events.
There are not too many of the old brigade left now, but in attendance at the Celebratory Mass were Sisters Patricia, Ita, Mary, Rosario, and Frances Crowe, who was the last postulant entering in Lucan to be fully professed as a Presentation Sister.
Unfortunately, Sr. Kathleen (John Bosco) who is not in the best of health at the moment, was unable to attend. She is in the Presentation home in Kilcock, and a small group of kind souls went to visit her in the evening time, taking her and Sr. Immaculata, who spent some years in Lucan, some of the birthday cake. Sr. Immaculata sends her good wishes to all her friends in Lucan.
Cyclists! Please be mindful of other road users, both pedestrians and motorists. Dangerous incidents of bicycles breaking traffic lights are all too common around Lucan.
Boys in Green are in action this Friday night v Wales – hopefully, the result will be great!
The Dubs – kept Kerry in their place on a bitterly cold night in Tralee. They meet Roscommon in Croker this Saturday evening!
