U8: Lorrha like to thank JK Brackens for inviting us to play in their annual tournament last Saturday. It was a great morning for all the clubs and players involved. As usual, the host club left nothing to chance. Everything was well organised. The refreshments afterwards were a treat and very welcome. However, the icing on the cake for us was winning all our games and bringing home the Joe & Biddy Giles Perpetual Cup. Congratulations to the panel of players and thank you to the mentors and parents that travelled and helped out. This is a big boost for those players at the beginning of their hurling careers.
