Senior: Our championship campaign is in limbo as we await the progress of Killenaule and Eire Og Annacarty in their divisional championships. Killenaule will play Mullinahone in the South final while Eire Og Annacarty will play Knockavilla Kickhams in the West final. If one or both is successful, we will progress to the last 16, which won't be played until late August at the earliest.

Junior Hurling: Lorrha defeated Shannon Rovers 1-21 to 1-4 in the third round of the championship in Ballinderry on Sunday afternoon with the goal coming from Ross O'Meara. It sets up a crucial game away to Ballina this Friday, 14th August at 7.15pm, where a win or a draw will see us through to the semi-finals. Regardless we are already through to the quarter finals.

Minor: The minor hurlers face Silvermines in Dolla this evening (Wednesday, 12th August) at 7.15pm in a crucial game where a win or draw would see us into the semi-finals. A defeat might still be enough if other results go our way.
