Minor: The minors get their championship underway against Shannon Rovers Gaels in Ballinderry on Thursday, 2 July.

Feile: Lorrha are taking part in the Féile na nGael All Ireland hurling tournament being hosted by Offaly and Laois.

They will be staying in the parish for two nights. Both sides will travel to Rathdowney on Saturday to take on the home side plus Ardfert from Kerry. Best of luck to Lorrha.
