Hurling for Cancer Research 2017

Hurling for Cancer Research 2017

The sixth annual Hurling for Cancer Research match

Top GAA, horseracing and sporting stars take to the pitch.

The total raised through the celebrity hurling match over five years is €542,000, enabling important Irish research breakthroughs such as a recent discovery made by BREAST-PREDICT, an Irish Cancer Society Collaborative Cancer Research Centre.

Jim Bolger said, “It is truly exciting to see the developments being made through cancer research here in Ireland. The number of people with cancer in Ireland is rising annually and more research is vital to tackle this growing epidemic. Davy (Russell) and I, and all those involved in Hurling for Cancer Research, are proud to play a part in funding the Irish Cancer Society’s work in this field.”
