Due to current high number of applicants to the college, we are conducting a review of our catchment area in order to reduce the number of applicants in Category B and therefore increase the likelihood of Category B applicants (first in family, attending a priority primary school and living within our defined catchment area) gaining a place in Lucan Community College.
We would like to gather your feedback on this matter and would appreciate it if you could complete the following short questionnaire:
The questionnaire will close next Friday 2nd December 2022.
Thank you in advance.

Congratulations to Kevin McGowan who was appointed to the role of Acting Deputy Principal on 27th September 2022. Mr McGowan has been a teacher of Metalwork, Engineering and Technology in Lucan Community College since 1994. He has held the role of ICT/Digital Coordinator for 21 years and more recently as Punctuality Officer also. He has spear-headed school improvement in the area of ICT introducing additional computer rooms and mobile student devices as well as teacher laptops. His leadership, along with a team of digital teacher leaders, was crucial during the period of remote learning in recent years when support was ongoing and essential for students and teachers. He will be a wonderful addition to the senior leadership and management team.
Congratulations to our amazing Transition Year musical class on their recent 3 night run of the Little Shop of Horrors.
The cast blew the audience away each night of this dramatic spectacle, singing and dancing to rapturous applause each night.
Their 3 night run culminated in a sell out show on the final night with cast, crew and audience revelling in the afterglow of awe, kudos and celebration.
A huge thank you to our wonderful Transition Year musical teachers, Ms Conway and Ms Geraghty for their dedicated work over the year to bring the show (and plants) to life.
Also a massive thank you to Mr Coogan for his work in creating the stage with his TY construction class and also to Ms Freeman for her work with her TY Enterprise class in running the tickets and tuck shops and a lot more behind the scenes.
Finally, thank you to our wonderful teachers who helped out in so many ways to make the show possible and our dedicated Parents Association who ran the Tuck Shop each night and sponsored the raffle prices.
