Lucan CC Athletes strike gold in Santry

Congratulations to our team of athletes who took to the track this week in Morton Stadium, Santry.

Particular mention must go to two athletes who took gold in their individual disciplines.

Max Carey, 6th year, took the top prize in the Senior Pole Vault and also grabbed a silver medal in the Senior High Jump for good measure.

Aine Burke, 5th year, then powered home in 1st in tricky conditions in the 1500m Steeple Chase.

It was great to see two of our most senior athletes be such great role models for the newer members of the school athletic team.

Well done to all involved and to Ms Conway and Ms Joy for organising the events and to Mr Phelan for accompanying the students on the day.

Congratulations to Lucan Community College’s Senior Hurlers who were crowned champions of Dublin for the second time after storming to victory today in Abbotstown.

The Lucan lads showed grit and determination from the off in their bid to retain the crown they had won just 12 months ago.

The goals flowed for the dominant Lucan CC hurlers, with Captain Alan Murphy leading in style. Lucan CC romped home with four points to spare in a 4-8 to 1-12 victory.

The final victory was built on a magnificent defence and much of the credit must go to the calm and assured play of both Ben O’Toole and Alex Hanley.

Their skilful linking of play allowed the forwards to dominate the scoring and ease Lucan to this tremendous victory.

The team’s success was no doubt brought about by the dedicated encouragement of the management led by Mr Morrissey and his assistant Mr Foley.

Well done to each and every member of the winning Lucan CC team. You have all made the school and the wider community proud with this magnificent win.

Best of luck to our Senior Boys Hurlers in tomorrow’s Dublin Final

Women’s Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour

SONY DSC

Our former pupil Molly Scuffil-McCabe returned to visit our school this week. Molly is currently a contracted rugby player with the IRFU. She began her road to playing international rugby under the guidance of Fiona Coghlan. Of course Fiona is a teacher in our school and was the captain of Ireland’s only grand slam winning team. Molly arrived in the official Rugby world cup vehicle and brought with her the trophy for the tournament. The Women’s rugby world cup will take place in August of this year, in Ireland. Every effort is being made to promote the tournament and the trophy tour certainly caused great excitement in our school, especially for our rugby playing boys and girls.
