Cats com­ing to spread the gospel in Avondale

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

HURL­ING fans would do well to get them­selves along to Avondale GAA Club this Satur­day for an event that prom­ises to be en­ter­tain­ing and en­light­en­ing.

Three of the finest play­ers to ever don the Kilkenny jer­sey will be ar­riv­ing at the club at 3pm to watch the chal­lenge game be­tween the home side and the men of St Pat’s be­fore re­tir­ing to the newly ren­o­vated club­house for a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with their fel­low county man and Barn­dar­rig leg­end Brian Walsh.

Richie Power, Brian Ho­gan and Eoin Larkin are the three Cats who will be mak­ing the trip to Avondale GAA club and the club have an af­ter­noon planned that will have events and treats to suit all ages.

Fol­low­ing the Avondale v St Pat’s hurl­ing match all chil­dren present will get the chance to meet the Kilkenny men who amassed an eye-wa­ter­ing 24 All-Ire­land medals be­tween them in their hugely im­pres­sive ca­reers.

Once they are fin­ished sign­ing au­to­graphs, shirts, fore­heads and what­ever else, the three hurlers will re­tire to the func­tion room where a healthy and en­ter­tain­ing dis­cus­sion is likely to un­fold as the Barn­dar­rig Bruiser puts the hard ques­tions to the Cats about life at the very sum­mit of the game and much more be­sides.

En­try to the hurl­ing game and the event out­doors is com­pletely free and there is a charge of €10 into the Q&A which is sure to be pop­u­lar among hurl­ing fans all across the county of Wick­low.

There will be a bar­beque, ice­cream van and other treats out­doors on the day while later on there will be a draw for spot prizes with the jewel of the crown be­ing a hurl signed by ev­ery sin­gle mem­ber of the 2014 Kilkenny panel.
