Under 21: Lorrha 2-5 Templederry 3-10
Lorrha’s competitive season came to an end in disappointing fashion on Sunday with defeat in the replay of the North Tipp Under 21’B’ Hurling Final.
The players gave it their all but the conditions didn’t help our lighter players but that is not taking away from Templederry’s deserved victory. See Match Report.
The Club would like to thank the players and mentors for their hard work during the year.
Team: Aidan Duggan; Graham Houlihan, Garrett O’Meara, Ciaran Duggan; Brendan Fogarty, Kevin Maher, Ciaran Haugh; Conor Sullivan, Eoin Gormally; Kevin Hough, John Lambe, Patrick Maher; Michael O’Meara, Jack Maher, Willie Hough. Subs: Eoin O’Meara, Sean Cleary, Andrew Hoctor.

The club would like to wish a speedy recovery to Michael O’Meara who suffered a recurrence of a knee injury at the weekend.
