Well done to all players and mentors involved as the Lorrha Under 12 boys and girls each enjoyed the special privilege of playing in Croke Park this week.
On Tuesday, the camogie team were invited to take part in the Camogie Association’s Tesco Camán to Croker 2022. They played and won all three games on the hallowed turf, facing Mount Leinster Rangers (Carlow), Newmarket on Fergus (Clare) and Erin’s Own Lavey (Derry). Missing from the camogie team photo are Kara Ryan and Saoirse O’Meara.
It was a great opportunity the girls to follow in the footsteps of their fellow clubwoman Clodagh McIntyre, and hopefully many more of them will represent Tipperary at Croke Park again in the future. Well done to players and management on their win over Slieve Felim in the County semi-finals last week in The Ragg, and best of luck to them in their upcoming final.
On Thursday, under 12 hurlers and camogie players were also invited by Munster GAA to a blitz at Croke Park, playing and winning all three games against Croke Rovers (Cork), Ballyduff (Kerry) and Naomh Brid (Waterford). Liam Donoghue also enjoyed the distinction of refereeing one of the games at Croke Park.
Well done to the players, parents and mentors for an enjoyable day in Dublin, which also included a tour of the GAA Museum, the dressing rooms and rest of the stadium. The kids were excellent and parents were delighted to see them play on Croke Park.
