The good news is that you will still get your chance to rub shoulders with celebrities from sports and entertainment all whilst making a difference and helping support vital cancer research with Hurling For Cancer Research to be held on Monday 21 August 2023 from 6pm at Netwatch Cullen Park in Carlow.

Purchase your individual (€10) or family* (€15) ticket online or make a donation direct to Hurling for Cancer Research and help support a great cause. All funds from the sale of tickets and donations will go directly towards funding vital cancer research, binging us closer to a future free from cancer.

*A family ticket covers two adults and up to three children under 15.

What is Hurling For Cancer Research?

Hurling For Cancer Research was established in 2011 when leading flat trainer and hurling fanatic, Jim Bolger challenged champion jockey Davy Russell and his weigh room colleagues to a game of hurling against him and his staff all in support of raising funds and awareness for cancer research.

Since then, the event has helped raise in excess of €1.2 Million towards an overall investment from the Irish Cancer Society of €30 Million in life-changing clinical trials and cutting-edge cancer research studies. Each year the Society funds over 100 cancer researchers across Ireland, thanks to the support of events such as Hurling For Cancer Research.
