Lucan CC student hits new heights at badminton championships


Congratulations to Tara Phelan (3rd year – Class Hume) who competed in the FZ Forza Irish National Individual Grade G Badminton Championships 2017/18 recently.

All in Lucan Community College are extremely proud of Tara and wish her every success in the future.

Lucan CC badminton players hit new heights


Congratulations to Lucan Community College’s junior badminton teams who enjoyed huge success in the local school’s badminton blitz tournament held this week.

The first year team recorded 10 wins with the second years recording 9 wins.


Congratulations to the second year team who were also crowned overall blitz winners.

Thank you to Ms. Gallagher for her diligent preparation of teams for the event.


Particular mention must go to Ms. Howley for her superb coaching of the second year team on their way to their overall win.

Lucan CC penalty pain in quarter finals


Congratulations and commiserations to the Lucan Community College U14 Boys Soccer team who were valiantly defeated in the Quarter Finals of the Dublin League this week.

Lucan CC dominated the first half of the match against Coláiste Éanna and were unlucky not to be in front at half time, having missed a penalty in the opening period.

The second half changed the complexion of the game with Coláiste Éanna scoring with their first attack of the half. Suddenly Lucan CC were chasing the game as time ran out.

However, the game changed again with Lucan scoring in the final minutes of the half to send the game to extra time.

Nothing could separate the sides and with penalties looming both sides attacked to find a winner before the dreaded spot kicks.

Unfortunately time ran out and penalties would decide the outcome.

Lucan CC came agonizingly close but cruelly lost 5-4 to end their hopes of league success in 2018.

However, the future is bright and the management team of Mr O’Connor and Mr Spillane believe great things are possible with this young, exciting Lucan side in the coming years.

Well done to all players, everyone in the college is proud of your efforts this season.

Lucan CC cross-country athletes shine


Congratulations to all the Lucan Community College athletes who bravely took to the mud in a frenetic but successful West Leinster Cross Country Championships last week.

There were excellent performances all round with Lucan CC finishing in much higher places among competing schools than in previous years.

Particular mention must go to two of our students, Aine Burke, who finished 6th in the Senior Girls category and Darragh Donahue, who finished 13th in the Minor Boys race.

Aine and Shane both now qualify for the Leinster Championships with a chance of representing Lucan Community College in the All-Ireland national finals.

A huge thank you must go to two of our teachers who relentlessly drive our athletic programme forward here in the College.

Ms. Joy for organising the teams, travel and logistics for each event and for coach Ms. Conway for bringing the students out running each Friday during lunch break.

Lucan CC’s emphatic win in Senior Dublin West league final


Lucan Community College’s senior soccer players turned in a stunning performance in the Dublin West league final beating St. Vincents CBS 6-0.

Lucan dominated the game from the off and put their opponents to the sword with a supremely competent and confident display.


Man of the match, captain Daniel Grant put in yet another standout performance of a hallmark year for the senior side with a 4 goal haul.

He was joined on the scoresheet by Jake McEntee and Amos Nohilly.

The final outcome of the game was down to more than just the scorers, secured instead by a committed performance by all players in Lucan colours.

Well done to the whole team and in particular to their dedicated and hard-working coach, Mr. O’Gorman.

A big thank you to Ms Gallagher for using her lunches to facilitate training and for bringing students to matches. Ms Gallagher reminds all students that new comers are welcome to their fun and friendly training sessions.

Senior Debating team battle on in Concern Debates



On Wednesday 29th November, the Lucan Community College Senior Debating team took part in the latest installment of this year’s Concern Debates. The senior debaters found themselves facing local rivals, St. Joseph’s College who proposed the motion; ‘China is Good For Africa’.

The Lucan Community College team opposed the motion with some fantastic speeches and rebuttals from our seasoned debaters Gayatri Sangra, Rhiannon Withero, Oisin O’Sullivan and our esteemed captain, Alex Healy.

Unfortunately, the motion was carried on the night giving the victory to a worthy team from St. Joseph’s College. The audience walked away from the debate having gained an invaluable insight into global development issues surrounding China’s involvement in the developing world.

It’s onwards and upward’s for the senior debaters as we take on Luttrellstown Community College on December 13th for our final debate before the new year.

Lucan CC Senior Hurlers crowned Dublin Champions


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


All the staff and students here in Lucan Community College wish our Senior Hurling Team the very best of luck in tomorrow’s Dublin Colleges final.

Lucan Community College take on Holy Family Rathcoole tomorrow in the final showdown in the National Sport Campus, Abbotstown.

Ballyhale Shamrocks v Kilmallock - AIB GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Club Championship Final

This is Lucan’s fifth game of the competition, having conquered St. Vincents CBS in the quarter final and Pobalscoil Setanta in the semi final on their magnificent journey to tomorrow’s final.
