Lorrha GAA News for 1 September

November 8, 2018

Senior: Lorrha were scheduled to play Ballina in the Seamus O Riain Cup on Saturday. Despite neither team having anything to play for, disappointingly we were unable to field a team and it brings an end to our hurling year. Thanks to all the players and mentors for their efforts.

Under 21: Lorrha have an outstanding North U21 'B' hurling championship first round game against Shannon Rovers which is likely to be played in the coming weeks.
