This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the 1916 rising.

To mark this significant period in Irish History, Lucan Community College History Department is hosting a series of events:

1. 1916 Commemorative Poster Competition . Students are asked to design a poster to mark the centenary. Prizes for each year group.

Submit your posters to your history teacher by end of Friday 8th April.

2.Transition years are currently working on 1916 projects. These will be displayed in April and prizes awarded at TY graduation ceremony.

3. Any students or staff who have relatives who were involved/ witnessed the events of 1916 (also include 1912 – 1923 including the war of Independence, Civil War..) and have any stories to tell/ primary source material from the time (postcards, medals, newspaper reports..), please talk to your history teacher or to Ms McCarthy urgently.

We hope to gather information to make the 1916 commemorations more local and personal and we look forward to hearing stories from students and staff.

We are delighted to announce the winners of our Reading Week Poster Competition for 2023. The standard of talent and creativity was outstanding. Well done to everyone who entered a poster. The overall winners are Ellen Birnie (Junior) and Naoise Murphy (Senior). Congratulations!
