Lorrha CountryFest: A decision was made at a recent joint executive and finance meeting committee not to go ahead with the CountryFest Music Festival in 2017. While last years event was a terrific success for the club and also for the community, the club isn't in a position to take the financial risk involved in running another such event at this present time but would consider running the event again in the future.

Sympathy: Lorrha GAA Club would like to sympathise with the Harding family on the passing of Gilbert Harding, Ballyduff, and to the Hogan and Houlihan families on the passing of John Jack Houlihan, Derrinvohill, Borrisokane. May they rest in peace.
