Two Entrepreneurial Lucan Students Make The Most Of A Covid Christmas

Lucan Students

Two fifth year students Hannah O’Reilly and Kaytlyn Monaghan from Lucan Community College lost their part time jobs due to Covid. Looking for an opportunity to earn some income, they have joined together to market beautiful and affordable wooden snowmen, reindeer food treats and marshmallows. Kaytlyn’s Dad is a woodturner and he shapes the snowmen and the girls do decoration and sales and marketing. The snowmen are available in two styles – wood turned and wood sliced versions. 

The snowmen can be personalised with names or messages. Two other products that the girls are promoting are sweet treats, Reindeer food and Reindeer hot chocolate with marshmallows.
