2018 Hurling Charity Game

Saturday evening (10th Nov) will see the third annual past players reunion match. This year has seen a massive interest with players expected from clubs as far away as the Ards, Camlough and a big turnout is also expected from Warrenpoint & Clonduff. For the first time there will be a Cup presented to the captain of the winning side and although the emphasis is on having fun and playing with and against old acquaintance from years gone, by there is a rather poignant reason as to the massive interest shown by those taking part. A few months ago, the Clonduff club were devastated at the loss of Peárce Branagan, a very talented young Hurler who passed away very suddenly due to a heart condition. It is for this reason that it has been decided that the proceeds raised at the game will be split between the development of juvenile Hurling and Cardiomyopathy UK, a charity nominated in honour of Peárce.

Proceeding are expected to get under way from 6pm, with tea/coffee being served in the 125 pavilion and to round off the evening there will be entertainment and a raffle in Mary Street clubrooms afterwards.
