Lucan Festival is all set to fire ahead . . .
LUCAN Festival 2022, takes place from September 9-11 – a full list of events is to be published this week – but it will kick off with an evening of music and fireworks on Friday, September 9.
The Lucan Festival committee asks the public to follow the instructions of stewards while attending the fireworks display.
Gardai will be on duty to ensure the safety of the general public.
People will not be allowed to stand on the bridge as this will be only used for entering the event and leaving the event.
Safety barriers will be put in place.
The committee asks parents to look after their children as a large crowd is expected to attend.
Music will be provided by a local radio station from 8pm and the fireworks will start a little after 9 pm.
Items on this year for the festival include a working vintage steam engine (opposite Ulster Bank), the Lucan Tram and a 1940s number 25 bus (opposite Courtneys). These are on Sunday, September 11.
On Sunday, from Ardeevin to the Ulster Bank, the road will be closed from 10am to 7pm.
The committee appeals to those who are in Lucan village on Saturday night not to leave their cars there until Sunday morning as it causes problems in setting up the attractions for the family fun day.
The village’s main street will be closed to traffic from 10am on Sunday, September 11, until 7pm.
The family fun day starts from 12.30pm, but all cars must be removed from the village as early as possible, to help the committee set up the event.
