Well Done to  Celine Cleary and Hazel Reddin on receiving their U14 County Medals with Tipperary Camogie on Friday night. Celine and Hazel have had a great year playing U14 for Tipperary. It was great to see a night organised for the Tipperary girls and so many Camogie players being presented their medals. Well done girls, Big stars of the future!


Lorrha Variety Group will be presenting its latest production, “Canaries”, a good, light comedy written by Bernard Farrell, in Lorrha Community Hall at the end of this month.  Directed by Diane Dagg, it has a cast of twelve people and is a comedy about Tommy, Marie and Marie’s father, who go on holiday to the Canary Islands and meet up with Jane, Richard and their gang. As the action unfolds, it emerges that many of the characters are not all they seem to be, with hilarious consequences. Tommy and Marie end up having a holiday that they will never forget – but not necessarily for the right reasons.

The play will run for three nights only on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December.

Our membership continues to grow and our weekly meetings are well attended. We are now looking forward to dog racing in Limerick, a shopping trip to Galway and a Christmas lunch at the Clare Inn, Dromoland on November 24th. All members welcome.
