Minister Congratulates Lucan Lions and their chosen beneficiaries

Minister Frances Fitzgerald was on hand this week to help the Lucan Lions celebrate as they distribute funds to local organisations.

“I was delighted to attend the Lucan Lions Club awards night in the Spa Hotel. It was only a couple of weeks ago that we were all gathered in the Spa to celebrate the Lions Gala fundraiser and it was great to be back to see the monies raised from that night distributed to local community groups and organisations,” said Minister Frances Fitzgerald.

“A total of €16,000 raised by the Club through various fundraisers was given out to local organisations in Lucan. Pieta House which does such tremendous work with the vulnerable, Lucan Home Start which provides invaluable support to so many families in the area, Lucan Disability Action Group and the Tidy Towns committee were among the beneficaries,” said Frances Fitzgerald.

“A special award was also given to Liam Flanagan for his contributions to the community. The Lucan Lions Club does tremendous work in the community and its an organisation I will continue to support,” concluded Frances Fitzgerald.
