On Sunday January 28th at 2pm in FBD Semple Stadium, Tipperary and Limerick will take to the field for a senior hurling challenge - all in aid of the Dillon Quirke Foundation.
Tickets, which will be available to purchase online here or at the gate on the day, are €20 for adults and free for under-16s who are accompanied by an adult. All proceeds will go directly towards the Dillon Quirke Foundation’s vital work delivering more life-saving cardiac screenings for young people involved in sport across the country.
Semple Stadium is where we tragically lost Dillon to SADS in August 2022. But it’s also a pitch on which he played many times - and his shining passion, talent, and love for the game will live on in all of our hearts, and through the life-saving work of the Foundation.
When: Sunday January 28th at 2pm (gates open at 12:30pm)
Where: FBD Semple Stadium, Thurles
Tickets: €20 for adults, free for u16s accompanied by an adult. Pay at the gate or buy online here - all proceeds go to the Dillon Quirke Foundation
If you can’t attend the match but would like to tune in and support the Foundation, don’t worry - the game will also be broadcast live by Tipperary GAA’s official streaming partner Clubber with all proceeds going to the Dillon Quirke Foundation. Supporters can watch the game by going to www.clubber.ie
Thanks to our generous and passionate community of supporters, over 200 children and young people have already been screened - and that number is growing fast. We’re working towards an ambitious goal of providing free screening to 5,000 young people in 2024. Just imagine the lives that this many screenings will save - the families that will avoid the devastation of losing a loved one to SADS.
There are plenty more ways that you can support the Foundation’s life-saving cardiac screenings - you can make a donation, buy a jersey on our website, or spread the word about the Foundation’s work and the upcoming match amongst your friends and family. All support is greatly appreciated, and makes a huge difference.
Thank you to everyone who’s making this day possible - Tipperary County Board, our brilliant volunteers, the players themselves - and of course, YOU. We hope to see you at the match on the 28th, but whether you can make it or not, thank you for being a part of the Dillon Quirke Foundation community.
