Lorrha GAA News for 4 August

November 8, 2018

Senior: Lorrha will return to action in the Seamus O Riain Cup against Holycross/Ballycahill on the weekend of 11-12 August.

Minor: Lorrha Rovers Gaels minor hurlers sit top of the 'A' round-robin section after three rounds of games with their next game being against Borris-Ileigh in Nenagh on Thursday 2nd August at 7.00pm.

Under 16: Lorrha Rovers Gaels have two games to play against Kilruane MacDonaghs and Ballina in the group stages of the 'A' hurling championship. They have won one and lost one game so far. They play Ballina on Monday 13th August in Lorrha while the Kilruane MacDonaghs game has to be rearranged.

Under 14: Lorrha's final group game in the 'B' hurling championship is against Burgess in Moatfield on Wednesday 8th August before the knockout stages take place. Lorrha have drawn one and lost two of their three games so far. They have also been playing in the Lough Derg Challenge, providing plenty of games during the summer.

Under 12: Congratlations to our under 12's who reached a first ever North U12 final in the 'A' grade following a 1-5 to 0-3 semi-final win over Ballina in Moatfield last Friday evening. Not even a delayed start could deter the players from winning their sixth game in succession to set up a final against Borris-Ileigh at a date to be confirmed.

Cul Camp: We had a huge turnout of 99 boys and girls for the annual Cul Camp in Moatfield last week. Thanks to Head Coach Tadhg O'Connor and all his coaches, including our own Michelle Mannion, for organising a fun-filled week of hurling, camogie and football.

Tipperary: Hard luck to the Tipperary minor hurlers in the All Ireland semi-final defeat to Kilkenny. Best of luck to the senior camogie team in the All Ireland quarter final against Waterford next Saturday.

Lotto: The jackpot is €5,550 with a Match 3 pot of €100. You can play online at

Social Dancing: in the GAA Centre on Friday to the music of John Molloy. Dancing 9.30pm to 12.30am.

Sympathy: Lorrha GAA Club would like to sympathise with the O'Sullivan family, Rathcabbin on the passing of Nuala O'Sullivan, who died suddenly last week. Also to the O'Sullivan family, on the death of Davie Sullivan, Wales and formerly of Lordspark. May they rest in peace.
