Team News
Colm Nally a GAA Master Tutor attended Lucan this Monday with a great turnout from all our mentors who gained some useful insights to coaching football and also got some tips to refresh the training drills. Thanks to Colm for supporting this it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

In Ladies Gaelic football two of our Sars Stars Rebecca O’Reilly and Sophie McIntyre started for Dublin v Wexford in the Leinster Minor B Championship Semi Final. Full time Dublin 3-06 (15) Wexford 1-10 (13). Good luck in the final ladies.

Another good weekend for our adult hurlers capturing maximum points from four league fixtures. Our seniors, Junior B’s and Junior C’s all had good wins on the field while our Junior A’s received a walk over. All four teams are either first or second in their league tables as we approach the final rounds.

U15 Hurling National Feile

Congratulations to our U15 Hurlers who made it to the Semi Final of the National Feile in UCD. The boys were unlucky only losing by 1 point in their last game.

U11 Hurling/Football
Our U11 Boys continued their national tour travelling to Portlaoise on Sunday to play in a Blitz involving Naas, Tullamore and Portlaoise. We also had a couple of the players from the U-10 panel, who made a big contribution. Lucan entered 2 teams in the blitz. Each team played 4 games in testing conditions. The boys demonstrated great skill, determination and teamwork. With each game they improved and by game 4 had mastered playing in the inclement conditions. A particular highlight was watching the boys sing Amhran na bhFiann before their last match, great practice for when they line out in Croke Park in the future. We would like to thank the parents and coaches for bringing the boys to the game and coaching them through the Blitz. A massive thank you to Portlaoise GAA for organising the Blitz and for inviting us. The organisation and planning of the event was second to none. We look forward to hosting them at some point in the future.

Oíche Buíochas
Agus an samhradh linn, bhí oíche bhuíochas ann do choitsealaithe agus chúntóirí uile an chumainn le buíochas a ghabháil leo as an obair iontach atá deanta ag gach duine acu go dtí seo i mbliana. Seo thíos roinnt de na buaicphointí:

- Tá méadú 15% tagtha ar líon na bpáistí atá ag imirt ag an aoisghrúpa F8 agus níos sine ón am seo anuraidh.
- Tá obair iontach ar bun leis na foirne F7 buachaillí & cailíní, a d'imir a gcéad chluichí le déanaí. Tá an dhá ghrúpa ar na grúpaí is mó a bhí ag an gclub san aoisghrúpa sin go dtí seo.
- Tá breis is 170 páiste tar éis freastal ar an Acadamh ó thús na scoilbhliana. Sin meadú 20% ar an mbliain roimh COVID
- Tá meadú 30% tagtha ar líon na ndaoine atá ag coitséail agus ag cabhrú leis an gclub ón am seo anuraidh.
- Bhí imreoirí faoi-aois NGÓ ag croílár na bhfoirne i nGaelscoil Naomh Padráig, Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada, Scoil Uí Dhalaigh, Coláiste Cois Life & scoileanna eile. Bhí 17 ar phainéal GSNP a shroich cluiche ceannais peile Chumann na mBunscoil i bPáirc Parnell níos luaithe i mbliana.
- De réir mar a théann imreoirí óga NGÓ in aois, tá siad á dtarraingt isteach i bhfoirne an chontae! Tá moladh ar leith ag gabháil do na himreoirí óga NGÓ a roghnaíodh do thrialacha BhÁC i mbliana, agus d’imreoir amháin a bhain áit amach ar fhoireann contae Chumann na mBunscoil.
- Tá na foirne fásta ag dul ó neart go neart. Tá an tsraith buaite ag foireann na mban, agus tá an 3ú foireann iománaíochta curtha chun páirce den chead uair i mbliana!

Molaimid obair na gcóitseálaithe agus na gcúntóirí ar fad. De réir a chéile a thógtar an caisleán!
