2019 Season Commences
Our Captain Noel Ryan and Lady Captain Bridie Griffin together with our President Noel Leonard will commence our Pitch and Putt year with our drive in this weekend. To our three Officers may we wish them the very best of good luck for the season ahead. Between them they will cover many parts of the country over the next few months supporting our members in the different competitions. We wish them safe driving and hopefully many memorable moments and some silverware to top off their year.

Wishing all our members a very Happy and Safe St. Patrick’s Day.

Thank you to A & A Engineering Ltd. for your continued sponsorship of our drive in which is very much appreciated.

Runamuck 2019
20 Fit4life ladies took on the Runamuck challenge on Saturday morning in the beautiful Coolcarrigan Estate in Co. Kildare. It was the first time for most of the group to take on the 5.6 km fun obstacle run over an extremely mucky terrain of bale “jumps”, water slides, net scrambles, tyres, tunnels, bogs and many more besides! It was a super day of fun, laughing, slipping, sliding, falling, climbing and sinking - with absolute teamwork from start to finish. At the same time it was an exhausting challenge and stamina sapping in every sense.

Everyone went home with big smiles and enough muck to fill a small bog!! Well done to Aideen McCormack, Aisling Morris, Amanda Breen, Anita Hughes, Ceara Kerrigan, Celine Murphy O’Keeffe, Eileen Harkness, Emer Rigney, Fanchea Gibson, Fiona McGovern, Geraldine Coogan, Helen McGinnity, Kim Jones, Louise O'Neill, Maggie Russell, Michelle Boyle, Orna Thomson, Sinead Fleet, Siobhan Casey and Susan McDonald


Lucan Harriers have National Masters Athletics Champions! Our Ladies Relay of Claire Johnston, Carol Kearney, Laura McAteer and Annette Durkan struck gold today in a tough battle. We are very proud of them.
