Lucan Harriers Christmas Party
Saturday night was a most enjoyable event in Lucan Spa Hotel and we should warmly acknowledge our wonderful secretary Ursula Eaton for such a job well done in organising everything down to a tee. It was an honour for Lucan Harriers to have Eileen O'Brien amongst us on the night. Chairperson Marie Collins presented Eileen with lifetime membership of our club - true and great recognition for the service and dedication Eileen has given Lucan Harriers for several decades.

The Annual Christmas Morning Goal Mile will take place for first time on Lucan Harriers new athletics track. All proceeds are in aid of Goal Charity. Once again Lucan Harriers Gerry Martin is organising the event and promises to be a bit of craic for all the family.
