Primary School: Lorrha National School had seven points (5-3 to 2-5) to spare when they overcame a tough and battling performance from Killusty NS in the football County Final held on Friday in Templetuohy.

This was a very exciting game of football with some great skill on display from both sides. There was plenty of heart-stopping moments too for both sets of supporters, as the game was nip and tuck throughout the first half. 

Lorrha got an early goal within the opening seconds, but Killusty hit back with a point. It took some time before both sides swapped points with Lorrha who were playing with a slight breeze on their backs, having loads of possession but unable to convert. There was loads of heart and determination from both sides and Lorrha were finding it hard to settle with Killusty going on to draw the game level going in at the break.

Lorrha were first out of the traps on resumption when they found the net to give them a three-point advantage after clever play. Killusty who were finding it hard to get in for a goal due to the fine Lorrha defending who kept a tight watch on proceedings, came back with a point. Lorrha were still pressing hard for goal and despite some wasted efforts and some great saves from the Killusty keeper, they were finally rewarded for their workmanship with two goals on the trot.

Killusty fought hard and kept the momentum up battling hard and they too managed a further two goals with minutes remaining, but it wasn’t enough as Lorrha closed out the game with two points and a last-minute goal which sealed the deal for the boys and girls in blue and white. Well done to the squad and their mentors Olive O’Meara (Principal), Tom Duggan and Aoife McLoughney.

Lorrha panel: Cathal Lambe, Nathan Young (Captain), Lee Mannion, Colin Coughlan, Joshua Kelly, Patrick Seman, Eoghan Kennedy, Jude Heenan, Oscar Morin Gradwell, Edel Kinsella, Saoirse O’Meara, Zara Curran, Megan Hanlon, Rachel Kinsella.
