The third round of the adult hurling leagues were played last weekend and it was mixed fortunes for Lucan with wins for our Junior As and Junior Bs, but defeats for the Seniors and Junior Cs. The action commenced on Thursday night when the Junior As got the better of Faughs in AGP, and then the following evening the seniors lost out to Kilmacud Crokes at the 12th Lock. Also on Friday evening the Junior Cs lost to Good Counsel/Liffey Gaels on a scoreline of 2-7 to 6-13. Then on Sunday morning the Junior Bs had a good win over Kevins 4-12 to 2-8.

In Ladies football, the Inters had an away league win at Skerries, while both junior teams won their first championship matches at home. Minor A and C both won at home to Kilmacud in the last of the round-robin league games. U16A camogie reached the Div1 League final with a win over Erins Isle. Elsewhere in Camogie, the seniors took the points away to Plunketts while the Inters shared the spoils with Naomh Olaf. Results for all games and match reports are on the website.

A reminder to all teams to return nets and flags to the correct storage locations at the end of games, and to replace the goalmouth protection on Pitch 1 and Pitch 2.
