About our club

Lucan Harriers was established in 1978 and currently has over 100 members. We have coaches who train members in a range of skills including road and cross-country to running to track and field events.

We are always looking for new club members and new club coaches so if you would like to give athletics a try, or just want some help in getting fit, we are here to welcome and support you in your running.

We have an annual registration fee that runs from January to December. This fee goes towards insurance, maintenance and club development. We regularly participate in local and national events at all distances and also have athletics competing at international racing events. With all the hard training there is also a social aspect of the club. We also have annual social events for our member such as summer barbeque and our Christmas night out.

One of our founding members was Tom Byrne, who's memory we celebrate every year with our Tom Byrne Memorial 5k Road Race.

Facilities

Lucan Harriers boast an All-Weather floodlit track situated in Esker, Lucan.

Our new clubhouse (which we share with Weston Hockey Club and Hillcrest Football Club) contains changing rooms, showers, toilets, kitchen area and a storage area.

The clubhouse was opened by Mayor Robert Dowds, South Dublin County Council and by Tanaiste Mary Harney T.D., Minister for Health and Children in Nov 2004.

Club Colours

We have changed the general design of our kit over the years but one thing that hasn't changed are the club's colours -- back and red.

Today, the club vest is red with a black stripe going from hip to opposite shoulder, showing the distinctive club crest.
