Class Plunkett attended a play put on to celebrate International Women’s Day in Lucan library today.
The 3rd year students watched an interactive play based on the Women of 1916. It was interesting to learn about the numerous women involved in 1916 who are often overlooked in Irish history, for both their bravery and active engagement in this Rising.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for the students
Lucan CC had an impressive win over Scoil Caitriona in the quarter final of the Dublin league and will now advance into the semi final.

Best for Lucan were Alex Giessel , Ethan Fennell , Matthew Dwyer and Aaron Cronin
Rowing Ireland continue their support of our efforts here in the college to improve student fitness and growing awareness of rowing as a fun activity.
This week the college held a Transition Year Rowing workshop to encourage students to get fit and see the enjoyment of this wonderful activity.
A very enjoyable morning and a great experience for our PE students.
Well done everyone involved and thanks to Rowing Ireland and our PE Department team for organizing this wonderful event.
We are really excited for our two Transition Year students, Eimear Corry and Amy Lyons, who have been been selected for the Junk Kouture Regional finals on the 5th of March in the Helix.
Everyone in the college is behind Eimear and Amy’s entry as the creative pair have worked so hard on their beautiful, plastic inspired dress.
However, Eimear and Amy require even more support in their push to get through the Dublin Regional Finals.
10% of the result in the Regional Finals will come from public voting.
The voting started on Monday the 18th of February and will end on Friday the 22nd of February.
As a college we would appreciate if everyone could take 1 minute to vote through the link below.
Register and then search to the ‘Dublin Region’ and look up the name of Eimear and Amy’s dress ‘Drowning in plastic’ and click vote.
Lucan CC brought 28 1st & 2nd students to this massive competition which took place in Abbottstown’s beautiful indoor 200m track.
All of our athletes did Lucan proud sprinting, throwing and jumping. We stormed to success and took home several medals for all our hard work.
Our mixed relay team consisting of Alex Geissel, Gerard Gorman, Dara Donoghue, Milly Hughes, Ago Salawu and Ashley Kam claimed the top prize of a gold medal.
They ran an unbelievable race and worked together to claim that top spot.
Our 1st year boys relay team consisting of Llyod Gysai, Eoghan O’Connor, Ben McLoughlin and Thomas Jermain won their heat and booked their spot in the final.
Once again they ran so well and were deserving winners of their 3rd place and got the bronze medal. In the individual events Alex Geissel made the Long Jump Final and placed 3rd getting himself another bronze medal.
This was a highly contested competition with over 150 participants. Our very own Llyod Gysai won his 60m sprint and also won his semi-final and then came from the back in the final to claim himself another bronze medal.
This was a fantastic achievement for all our students. Well done everyone!
Congratulations to our Junior Maths Team, students Ronak Pathak, David Wright, Fintan Buckley, and Charlie O’Malley, on their fantastic victory in the regional IAMTA Problem-Solving Quiz.
The Lucan Community College team took gold in the prestigious Maths Quiz in Patrician Secondary School in Newbridge last week.
They will now go on to represent the school in the National Final on 23 March.
We wish them every success as they prepare for the national final!
On Friday 25th of January two teams of four Leaving Cert students from Lucan Community College competed in the Dublin region round of the annual Team Math competition in Rathdown School, Glenageary.
This competition has been run by the Irish Maths Teacher’s Association since 1991. This year 48 teams from many different schools in Dublin and the wider area participated.
The competition is composed of 8 rounds of challenging questions based on the Leaving Cert higher level course.
We have competed in this competition for many years but this year is the first year we have been victorious.
We are so proud of our senior Maths A team of Alex Hanley, Luke Neville, Oisίn O’Sullivan and Petra O’Connor.
The team held off serious competition from the other schools including Sandford Park, Gonzaga College, Confey Community College, St. Gerard’s, Bray, St. Wolston’s, Celbridge amongst others and in doing so won the Dublin region competition outright.
The victorious Lucan CC team now progress to the national finals in Maynooth on Saturday 2nd of March. Well done also to our second team of Kevin Wang, Killian Lyons, Przemek Majda and Rίan Porter who performed brilliantly too.
Lucan Junior Girls footballers are champions again.
It was a great performance from the girls in the Junior Camogie shield final out in Naomh Marnog.
Lucan CC were simply far too strong for Trinity Comprehensive and the match was pretty much over after 10 minutes. Millie Reid, Niamh Roche and Fey Murphy were excellent on the day.
Final score 10-17 to 0-0.
Lucan Community College performed brilliantly at the Badminton Blitz held in Lucan Leisure Centre this week.
The 2nd year team won, 14 games to 6 with some very skillful shots but the 1st year team never gave up and improved with every game played.
