We're Back!

Following an enforced two year break, Hurling For Cancer Research is back! This is your chance to rub shoulders with celebrities from sports and entertainment all whilst making a difference. Purchase your tickets online or make a donation direct to Hurling For Cancer Research and help support a great cause. All funds from the sale of tickets and donations will go directly towards funding vital cancer research, bringing us closer to a future free from cancer.

Hurling For Cancer Research was established in 2011 when leading flat trainer and hurling fanatic, Jim Bolger challenged champion jockey Davy Russell and his weigh room colleagues to a game of hurling against him and his staff all in support of raising funds and awareness for cancer research.

Since then, the event has helped raise in excess of €1.1 Million towards an overall investment from the Irish Cancer Society of €30 Million in life-changing clinical trials and cutting-edge cancer research studies. Each year the Society funds over 100 cancer researchers across Ireland, thanks to the support of events such as Hurling For Cancer Research.

After taking a break for two years we welcomed back celebrities from sports and entertainment to participate in front of a crowd of eager spectators to St. Conleth's Park on the 16th August at 6.00pm.
