1916 Commemoration Day: held last Sunday was a tremendous success. Thank you to all those who played their part, particularly David Broderick and the Lorrha Historical Society. Men and women, young and not so young lined out in a hurling match all decked out in the style of 1916. After the game, the proclamation was read by children from the three local national schools who then raised three tri-colours while the National Anthem was sung by Darren Bourke who then joined Tradstone for an evening of music in the Clubhouse. A nice way for the parish to acknowledge the centenary of 1916.
