Lorrha GAA News for 26 December

November 8, 2018

Adjourned AGM: The Adjourned AGM took place on Monday night last. Report next week.

Juvenile AGM: Just seven people turned up at last weeks Juvenile meeting as things reached crisis point in terms of help for our underage teams. Aidan McIntyre stepped down as Chairman after four years but the position wasn’t filled. Niall Brophy stepped down as secretary and was replaced by Ruth Needham.
Worryingly also, no managers were selected for the U12 & 14 teams. Hubert Hogan takes over the Under 16’s for the year ahead. For the club to have a bright future, a lot more people need to get involved with our underage teams, particularly the parents of the children in those categories. All the vacant roles will be filled in the New Year.

1984 Reunion: The club will host a 25-year reunion for the 1984 senior team which won the North Tipp title and reached the county final. It will take place on Monday, 28 December in the GAA Clubhouse. Presentations will be made to each of the panel and management. Ray Kennedy will provide music while there will also be finger food. There is no charge so it is the place to head to on Monday, 28 December starting at 8.30pm sharp. The weekly lotto draw will also take place there on the night.

Race-Night: A race-night fundraiser will be held in The Friars Tavern on Sunday, 27 December. Support for the night has been very good and a lively night is expected.
