Important Weekend for Lisdowney and Rower Inistioge

‘The Legends Return’ to Lisdowney

The who’s who of hurling will be in Lisdowney, Co Kilkenny, at the end of this month when Lisdowney GAA hosts a very special match on Saturday, 30th May 2015, at 6.30 pm where a combined team of retired Kilkenny hurlers will play Lisdowney. Lisdowney will be joined by some very special well known retired inter-county guests on their panel on the night. 

The Kilkenny team will consist of superstars such as DJ Carey, Derek Lyng, David Herity, PJ Ryan, Michael Kavanagh, JJ Delaney, Tommy Walsh, Brian Hogan, Martin Carey, Michael Grace, Brian McEvoy, Aidan Fogarty, Eddie Brennan, Charlie Carter, Noel Hickey, James Ryall, John Tennyson, Willie O’Dwyer, Martin Comerford, John Maher, Brian Dowling and John O’Neill. Lisdowney will be joined by Brendan Cummins, Doc O’Connor, Tony Browne, Eoin Kelly, Eoin McGrath, Keith Rossiter, Rory Hanniffy, Damien Hayes, Tony Óg Regan, Eoin McGrath and Martin Storey.  Other names will be confirmed closer to the time. The Kilkenny team will be managed by Rackard Cody and Conor Phelan and the Lisdowney and friends team will be managed by Lisdowney Manager, Maurice Power. Referee on the night is Paddy Bowden. 

This All-Star superstar line-up for both teams will provide a cracker of a game, which is being held as a fundraiser for Lisdowney GAA Club. Admission is €10 per person, children under 12 are free. This is an opportunity for hurling supporters to witness, once again, the combined skill and class of such esteemed players.

The exhibition game is expected to draw hurling fans from all around the country and anyone attending will be treated to a great evening: “We have worked very hard over the past few weeks to secure this elite line-up of players,” said Tim Brennan, Chairman of Lisdowney GAA Club. “We are very grateful to each of the players who are giving up their time. The idea of bringing in retired players from other counties to support our own successful Lisdowney team has added great interest also. It should be a lot of fun, but should also demonstrate to hurling fans the greatness and skill of all of these players. It really will be a who’s who of hurling in recent years. A number of other retired players were invited to play but unfortunately, due to work and family commitments, are unable to join us on the night but have given us their full support.” 

Lisdowney GAA Club is a club that has been on the rise over the past few years, having won the Junior County Hurling Championship for the first time in 53 years in 2013, and reaching the quarter finals of the Intermediate County Hurling Championship last year.  Special traffic and parking arrangements will be in place in the village on the night. Lisdowney GAA Club is looking forward to welcoming all hurling fans to this special event.
