Lorrha GAA News for 16 January

November 8, 2018

Under 21: Hard luck to our under 21's who lost the North 'B' final to Borris-Ileigh in Moneygall on Saturday, 3-10 to 1-7. Having come from five points down to lead going into the final quarter, the concession of two late goals ended our hopes. Thanks to the players for their commitment for what was an elonganted championship as well as to manager Hubert Hogan, coach David Needham and selectors Aidan McIntyre and Shane Brophy for their work with the team and also to the supporters who turned up in large numbers.
