Lorrha GAA News for 7 May

November 8, 2018

Senior: The senior hurlers face Kilruane MacDonaghs in a crucial final group game in the County Senior Hurling Championship in Borrisokane on Saturday at 7pm. A three-point win would see Lorrha maintain their roinn 1 status for 2017 and could see us into the knockout stages depending on the outcome of the Portroe v Clonoulty game. All support would be appreciated for this crucial game.

The North Championship first round game against Roscrea will take place on 28-29 May or 4-5 June.

Junior: The Junior hurlers suffered a 3-15 to 2-12 defeat to Ballina in the third round of the league in Ballina at half time. The concession of three first half goals put Lorrha under great pressure but they improved in the second half. Our final game is away to Kiladangan where we need to win to have any hope of reaching the semi-finals.
