Senior: Lorrha 1-10 Toomevara 2-12
Lorrha bowed out of the North Championship after producing a performance full of character despite mitigating circumstances but unfortunately it was not enough to beat Toomevara. Lorrha will now go into the County ‘B’ Hurling Championship which will start later in the summer.
The club would like to wish a speedy recover to Patrick Maher who sustained a broken bone in his hand during Sunday’s game.

Junior: Lorrha 2-13 Nenagh Eire Og 0-9
Lorrha got their Junior ‘A’ Championship campaign off to the perfect start on Friday evening with an impressive win over Nenagh in Puckane.
