Fitzgerald Congratulates Lucan Festival Committee on Enormous Success

Frances Fitzgerald, Local TD and Minister, has congratulated the Lucan Festival Committee on another successful year.

“This year’s Lucan Festival was the best one yet. The village was buzzing throughout the weekend and everyone seemed to enjoy all the attractions on offer. As always, it was great to get the opportunity to tour the Garda Station and have the Garda Band entertaining the crowd. Many thanks also to the Italian Ambassador, Giovanni Adorni Braccesi Chiassi for opening his residence to the public on Saturday. As always, there was a fantastic range of activities for all ages on offer over the weekend.

“I was also delighted to open the newly renovated Bank of Ireland branch. I wish Manager Yvonne and her team all the very best.

 “There was involvement from a wide range of local clubs and organisations, including sports clubs, dancing, music and many more. There is no doubt that community spirit in Lucan is at an all-time high.

“Organising a celebration like this is no mean feat and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those involved in organising the event, the volunteers who helped out on the day and all those who came out to support this positive and proactive community initiative ” concluded Minister Frances Fitzgerald.
