Intermediate Hurling: Lorrha 2-13 Clonlara 3-18
Lorrha’s campaign as an Intermediate club came to a disappointing end on Sunday afternoon when Clonlara came from behind to win a place in the Munster Final. Things looked good for so long but the force of the Clonlara fightback in the second half was too much to hold back. See Match Report.
Team: Kevin Hough; Graham Houlihan, Tony Hogan, Tadhg Nevin; Ciaran Haugh, Stephen Hogan, Kevin Maher; Rory Coen, Jack Maher; Michael Cleary, Noel Hogan, Patrick Maher, Ronan O’Meara, Trevor Hogan, Colm Duggan. Subs: Kevin Liffey, James Dunne, Barry Moran, Ciaran Duggan.
