The Dillon Quirke Foundation
This foundation was set up in honour of our beloved Dillon who collapsed during a hurling match and died of SADS on the 5th of August 2022 in Semple Stadium Thurles.
Sudden adult death syndrome (SADS) takes 100 young lives in Ireland every year. With your help, our aim is to raise awareness and save lives by screening every GAA player both male and female from the age of 12 upwards.

How you can get involved
Our first fundraiser is a challenge match between Tipp & Kilkenny's senior hurlers on Sunday, February 19th at FBD Semple Stadium. You can attend on the day, live stream the match or buy a non-attendance ticket.
More details coming soon. In the meantime, you can donate to the foundation's GoFundMe page:
