Lorrha Notes

All proceeds go to Lorrha Development Tidy Towns. 


A proud Lorrha man Dermot Corcoran is pictured here with his three granddaughters Ella, Holly and Alva and with Patrick Bonner Maher who presented certificates in camogie and football to teams in the Round Towers GAA Club, Kildare Town.   Dermot said that as a past Lorrha player of the 60’/70’s it was a honour and privilege to meet him  and specially when three of my granddaughters Ella, Holly and Alva were in receipt of Certificates for awards in Camogie and football which he presented.
Well done to all and thank you for the lovely photograph.
