Two little friends  of the couple Padraig Egan and Caitlin Mooney carried the duty of page boy and flower girl respectively and did a fine job too.  Fr.

Lorrha Variety Group.

Rehearsals are well under way in Lorrha for the Variety Group’s latest production which will take place at the end of the month. Canaries, written by Bernard Farrell, is a very Irish play about a very Irish group on holidays and audience members will recognise a few characters they have come across on their own holiday experiences. It is arguably Farrell’s funniest play and is centered around three couples who go to the Canaries on a package holiday in a bid to escape their everyday surroundings. Everyone arrives with an appetite for the sun, sea and sand but things soon start to go wrong, with hilarious consequences, as the weather isn’t what is expected and the holiday-makers end up having a holiday that they will never forget, but not necessarily for the right reasons!  Keep a date free in your diary at the end of the month, the play will open in Lorrha Hall on Friday 29th November and will run for three nights only.

Lorrha Camogie.

The U12 Girls put up a fantastic fight on Saturdsy in the County Semi Final in the Ragg Camogie Grounds against a strong Brian Boro side. It was a horrible day for camogie and conditions were poor but the girls gave everything and never gave up which is a great sign of a team! The girls were very unlucky for a few goals but every girl gave everything and they will be back no Doubt as they are a great group of talented and well behaved girls which is a credit to themselves and their parents. Lorrha 1-00 Brian Boro 3-04.It has being a great year for underage Camogie in the parish with this being their second contested Semi Final this year and girls breaking through with Tipperary underage Camogie so the future is bright! The girls really enjoyed their year playing and having fun together and their Camogie skills have came on so much and getting their new hoodies also!

“We’d like to thank you folks for flying with us today.. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you’ll think of Kulula Airways.”
