Lorrha GAA News for 20 September

November 8, 2018

U21 All Ireland: Hard Luck to both Kevin & Patrick Maher and the Tipperary Under 21 team following their defeat to Kilkenny in Sundays All Ireland. Our lads did us proud, coming back from a desperate situation and on another day might have sneaked it. It was indeed a proud day for the club to see two players marching behind the band prior to an All Ireland.

U14: Pride of place this week goes to our Under 14’s who won the North ‘B’ Final by producing a late scoring burst to beat Ballina in Nenagh on Thursday last. Late goals from Philip Hogan and Eoin Cleary saw Lorrha come from behind to win 2-10 to 0-13. See Match Report.
The team took on Gortnahoe/Glengoole in the county semi-final on Monday evening and won 2-9 to 1-5. The County Final will take place this weekend. Check website for full details.

U16: Our Under 16’s North Final against Borris-Ileigh originally scheduled for this evening (Wednesday, 17 September) has been postponed due to the Under 14’s reaching the County Final. Check website for updates on refixed date.

Junior: The Juniors take on Toomevara in the replay of the North semi-final in Cloughjordan on this Saturday at 3pm. Best of luck to the players and mentors.
