Lusk School Celebrates Long Awaited Sports Hub

Lusk sports dayPictured at the Rush and Lusk Educate Together School's sports day are some of the school children enjoying a game of tug o'war.

The new Lusk Recreational Hub held the first event on their newly acquired grounds recently, with a family sports day, for Rush and Lusk Educate Together National School.

The glorious weather recently did not fail to deliver, while the school community enjoyed a few hours of fun, with a series of events ranging from ‘track and field athletics’ to ‘welly throwing’. While others enjoyed tea, coffee and cakes supplied by the parents committee.

Commenting on the event’s success, was principal Patricia Hurley. “Here in Rush and Lusk Educate Together school we are delighted with the new Recreational Hub for Lusk. We celebrated its long awaited handover by having our Sports Day there and it is really a fantastic facility. We look forward to its future development and to making full use of it for school events and sports activities”.

The Lusk 20/20 action group spoke to the County Leader to say, “Congratulations to everyone who made the day a fantastic success, the first of many we hope, with particular thanks to the ‘Parks and Green Infrastructure Division’ of Fingal County Council for allowing usage of the green area, which has just recently come into the ownership of the Council.”

They concluded,”We have a target to now develop this space into an active recreational hub for the full community of Lusk to enjoy.”
