Reusable Cup Design Competition!

The people of Lorrha and Dorrha pride themselves not just on their awareness of their local history, but also on their appreciation for the natural world around them. Our Environmental Officer Catherine Power has been hard at work finding the right suppliers for reusable cups to be sold in our heritage centre. Not only will these cups be far better for the environment than single use plastic cups, they will also let their owners proudly show off their connection to this beautiful area.

But with all the history, places of interest and natural beauty that Lorrha and Dorrha has to offer, we weren't sure how to best show off our little area in Ireland's hidden heartlands. That's where you come in!

Have your chance to get your artwork on a limited edition Lorrha Dorrha Reusable Cup! The Cup should reflect and promote Lorrha Dorrha in a positive way, be it our vibrant history or the abundant flora and fauna around us. Submissions can be in any 2D format but be aware that the chosen piece will be scanned and scaled to fit the template.

Drop off your artwork along with completed form to Lorrha Community Shop and Heritage Centre before Friday 26th of October. Online submissions can also be emailed to

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website for announcement of the winner in early November!
