Lorrha GAA News for 17 February

November 8, 2018

Medal Presentation: Thank you to everyone who made last Saturday's medal presentation such a huge success. Almost 100 medals were presented to the under 11 & 12 hurlers, Junior 'B' mens and Camogie league winning teams as well as the under 21 team who won the North 'B' title. Our county panellists Patrick 'Bonner' Maher and Brian Hogan were on hand to present the juvenile medals while selector John Madden presented the adult medals.

A signed Tipperary jersey and hurley were put up for auction and yielded good prices.

Thanks to the Mannion family for organising the finger food.
