Due to Covid-19, Hurling For Cancer Research, the annual charity hurling match between a host of racing, GAA, sports stars and TV personalities, is going virtual for 2020.
Instead of Jim Bolger’s and Davy Russell’s teams lining-out in St Conleth’s Park on Tuesday, August 11, a host of stars will take part in a virtual hurling skills challenge to raise much needed funds for the Irish Cancer Society’s cancer research.
Those taking part in the virtual hurling skills challenge are: Frankie Dettori, Davy Russell, Lee Chin, Richie Hogan, Ursula Jacob, Marty Morrisey, Ruby Walsh, AP McCoy, Miriam O’Callaghan, Ger Lyons, Shane Foley, Willie Mullins, Danny Mullins, Paul McGrath, Ashling Thompson, Tommy Walsh and Cian Boland. Everyone’s hurling challenges will be shared on social media.
Those participating in the challenge are asked to donate what would have been the match ticket price of €10 to the Irish Cancer Society to help the charity continue their vital work to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
