Senior: Our seniors finally got off the mark at senior level with a gutsy win over Roscrea on Sunday afternoon. The win sets us up for the Seamus O’Riain Cup which starts next month.

VHI Cul Camps: The Lorrha GAA VHI Cul Camp takes place this year between 20-24 July.

Munster Final: As the Munster Final is likely to be a sell-out, only club members will get first access to tickets.
