(d. 1343), justiciar of Ireland 1331–2, after Edward III escaped from Roger Mortimer's tutelage. His rule was intended to prepare for a royal expedition to Ireland. He imposed a resumption of grants made to Anglo-Irish lords by Mortimer, arrested the 1st earl of Desmond, and executed William de Bermingham. Lucy was a Cumbrian baron and border soldier; the renewed Anglo-Scottish war led to his withdrawal from Ireland and the abandonment of Edward's expedition.
