Over 40s Hurling Match To Raise Funds For Charity

Posted by


FOR those of you looking for things to do over the holiday period, here’s something that sounds like a bit of craic.

The ‘old-timers’ in Crotta O’Neills and Abbeydorney will take to the field in what’s billed as a ‘Battle Of The Fittest’ showdown on Tuesday, December 28 at 1pm at Abbeydorney GAA pitch.


The Over 40s hurling game is all in aid of the great cause that is the Kerry Cancer Support Group’s Kerry-Cork Healthlink Bus.

The event is being organised by Tony Maunsell from Abbeydorney and Brendan O’Mahony from Crotta O’Neills, both former inter-county hurling stars with the Kingdom and it’s hoped that it will become an annual event each Christmas.

There will be a bucket collection on the day, with proceeds going to the cancer support service.

The teams will be paraded before the game and introduced to the spectators while there will be music and fun in the bar afterwards. Sounds like a fun  way to pass Tuesday afternoon.
