Sympathy: Lorrha GAA Club would like to sympathise with the Madden Family, Grange, on the sudden passing of Paddy Madden who died last week after a short illness. Paddy was one of the great stalwarts of the club and was present at as many Lorrha games as possible. He was also a great player in his day and won two North Senior Hurling Championship medals in 1956 and 1966. Ar dheis De go raibh a h-anam dilis.
