Sympathy: Lorrha GAA Club would like to sympathise with the Hogan family, Nenagh on the death of Peter Hogan who passed away last week. Peter was a great player and great supporter of Lorrha. He played mostly in the half forward line, winning a county juvenile title in 1957 before helping Lorrha win the 1966 North Senior title. His teammates and members of the Lorrha club formed a Guard oh Honour at his funeral in Nenagh on Tuesday, 27 April before his internment in Lisboney cemetery. May he rest in peace.
