Many boys go around with the wren bush in Lucan. This year there were wren boys from Trim in Lucan. One of them had a melodeon, and the other fellow had a fiddle, While these were playing another fellow collected the money. One of them was dressed as an old woman and the other two were dressed as a bride and bridegroom, after that they went to the Spa Hotel, where the Harriers had their meet.
