You can also play the Lorrha GAA Club Lotto Online by going to our website: and clicking on the lotto icon or going to The number of players who have joined is growing by the week. It is easy to play and players can play for a number of weeks meaning they don’t have to play every week.

We would ask that all our promoters would leave their tickets at a collection point in the parish no later than twenty four hours prior to the date of each lotto draw as it allows our draw workers to operate the draw smoothly on the night without having to track down tickets.

Sympathy: Lorrha GAA Club would like to sympathise with the Godlington family, Lisballyard, on the death of John Godlington who died suddenly on Sunday night. May he rest in peace.
