Where is Summer?
Summer Soltice come and gone by the time most people read this week’s copy. I wonder if we’ve ever had so wet a June!

Dubs are putting a shine on things at any rate! Our Man of the Match in last week’s thriller v Galway was Lucan Hurler, and Dublin Captain Chris Crummey – You’ve made it when you’re on Anthony Daly’s radar!


Chris signing autographs for young fans. Dublin Camogie girls did the business as well last weekend, with some Lucan ladies involved.

We’ll be watching the big ball game v Meath this weekend, and watch out for Lucan’s Darren Gavin! Up the Dubs


Out of sight, out of mind! An Maidrín Rua seo was visiting Sarsfield Park early on Monday morning last – it would seem there are quite a lot of foxes all over the area, but they keep it quiet!!!

Traffic problems on the old Leixlip Road opposite Maxol this week, after a section of Lucan Demesne wall collapsed on Sunday morning.


A good section of the footpath is gone also. Thankfully no one was injured.

In the meantime, a stop/go system is in place and will probably be active until after repairs are carried out.

Ladies! Be very careful in car parks when loading your shopping! We heard of a nasty incident in a local car park this past week – a lady placing her shopping in the boot of her car noticed a fellow running fast close by, and jumping into a waiting car. Then she realised that her handbag was gone from the front seat of her car. Within 20 minutes her bank card had been used!

Well done to SDCC for the ongoing work at Esker Cemetery. We complained when the grass wasn’t being cut, so we must compliment them when they do the job.

St. Finian’s Ruins – it was very disheartening to learn of new graffiti on these old walls, with all the effort that is being made to conserve this site. Shame on the culprits!
