The Intermediate hurlers and Minor footballers will be presented with their medals. Music by The Legends. There are a limited number of tickets on sale priced at €40. A great night is in store.

Adjourned AGM: The Adjourned AGM was held on Saturday, 22 December last. William Harding was elected Treasurer while Jack Maher is the new registrar with all membership payable to him at Gurteen, Rathcabbin. William Harding will also double up as Alcohol & Substance Abuse Officer. The club also debated at length the structure for the senior hurling championship and overwhelmingly supported the Kilruane motion whereby Lorrha would have four games in the North Championship to reach the county championship stage while relegation would also be scrapped. The decision on the county championship structure will take place at the county board meeting on 22 January.
