Lorrha Notes

Lorrha U-15 lads in action v Moneygall – Dunkerrin  in the North Final on Saturday last. Hard luck lads.


Tipperary Fire and Rescue.

An important reminder from Tipperary Fire & Rescue to check your smoke alarms are in working order. A simple task could save a life. Failure to have a smoke alarm or even a faulty one, can have devastating consequences. Check your more vulnerable friends and family members smoke alarms too. You never know, you could save a life.

Waste of Money.

Tipperary County Council recently released information pertaining to costs they incur in cleaning up illegal dumping in the Premier County alone.
Illegal dumping in Tipperary cost the  County Council a whopping €27,451.42 in 2019 and even soared upwards to €52,823.69 in 2020. That represents a total cost over the two years of €80,275.11 and a near two-fold increase last year. What a shocking waste of money and all because of reckless people dumping their rubbish along our roads. Shame on them!!

Sympathy is extended to Madealine Lewis Rathcabbin and family, on the death of her sister Ann who died in Africa where she resided, recently. May she rest in peace.

Hard Luck.

Commiserations to the U-15 lads and their mentors who went down to Moneygall-Dunkerrin 2.13 to 4.11 in the North Final on Saturday last. Hard luck lads.
Commiserations also to the Lorrha senior team who lost by eleven points to Newport/Ballinahinch in the relegation game held on Saturday last. Too many injuries this year has cost the team dearly. Hard luck lads.

Lorrha Camogie Notes.

The U 15 team played their second game in the league campaign, and they have improved a lot despite defeat to Ballina on Sunday last. We wish them well in their remaining games.
The U13’s will play St. Cronans in Roscrea and wish them well here too and with their remaining games.
Our junior girls were given a walk over by Ballingarry in the last of their group games. They now proceed to the quarter final but as yet don’t know who the opposition will be. However, they do have home advantage on Sunday 17th at 10.30am.


The Gardaí in Nenagh have repeated their call on the public to be vigilant in relation to the activities of cyber criminals. This comes after an incident in recent weeks where a male customer of a bank had €20,000 removed from his account after acting on a text message he received, duped into thinking it was genuine correspondence from a local bank. Gardai are reminding people never to click on a link and do not entertain a caller to your phone asking for details. Be aware and be warned.
