Féile 2018
Hard luck to the girls Div 1 Féile team who lost out by a single point in a hard fought semi-final to eventual winners BallybodenSE. A gallant effort and they did themselves and the club proud over the weekend. We now turn out attention to the Boys hurling Féile this weekend. Div 1 in Cherryfield; Div 6 in the 12th Lock.

A very busy week last week, hard luck to the Senior Footballers who lost out in the opening championship match to Na Fianna. Our Jnr A and B footballers finished the weekend with two good wins, our Jnr As after opening sluggish, were1-03 to no score down, however they fought back well and finished well, to win 0-14 to 1-07 against a good Thomas Davis side. The Jnr Bs, with a large squad, won well 1-14 to 1-07 in the second game played on the 12TH lock pitch. A big thanks to Mike Wisdom and his team who have done a sterling job through the terrible weather conditions over the last number of weeks.

15A footballers had a comprehensive win in the first round of Championship vs St Maurs. Good wins for the 13 A and B teams, while the 13 C team lost out to a strong Castleknock side. 14A had a hard earned but well-earned draw away to Kilmacud Crokes to remain top of Div 1. Great win for the U12A hurlers away to Ballyboden. A very solid win for 13A camogie vs Kilmacud Crokes on Monday night as well. Another good midweek performance from our 16B footballers who are going from strength to strength, the 16A team won also. 14A hurlers had a good win away vs Na Fianna, missing a few players but a solid performance as they look forward to Féile this weekend.

Senior 1 Camogie got their first win of the league 0-16 to 0-10 vs BSJ. Senior 7 lost out to Commericals’ first team. Our Div 8 Ladies Football continued on their winning streak making it 3 from 3 in the league vs a strong St. Finians (N) team.

The U14A football squad took on Kilmacud Crokes in Silver Park on Saturday. On a heavy pitch it was a match that was going to be decided by hard work and effort and our footballers were not lacking in effort, application or teamwork. Playing against a heavy breeze. Lucan started positively scoring a couple of hard worked points. Both sides had a number of chances to score but each point was well earned as the sides ended level at 0-04 to 0-04 at half time. Kilmacud came out strong in the second half putting the first two points on the Board but Lucan dug in deep to keep in touch. With 10 minutes to go Lucan found themselves 3 points down but some excellent team play say the lads finish the stronger with 3 unanswered points to finish the game level at 0-09 to 0-09. An excellent game of football between two committed teams in a great example of sportsmanship. Panel: Zack Delmar, Cathal Doody, Jack Doyle, Liam Farrell, Eoin Kilduff, Alex Hickey, Finn Bruton, Rossa Daly, Conor Hylands, Jack Behan, Conor Sheary, Gareth Kennedy, Michael Cunningham, Jamie Smith, Joey McSweeney, Luka Kavanagh, Charlie Mulqueen, Colin Duffy and David Mulqueen.
