Carrick-on-Suir’s Davin Park will be hosting another Tipperary inter-county hurling game this Friday following on from the success of last week’s two matches between the Premier County’s and Deise’s Senior and U-21 squads.

More than 2000 hurling fans flocked to Davin Park for the two Maurice Davin Festival challenge games last week, which were both won by Tipperary. (See Sports Section for match report).

Maurice Davin Festival Chairman Bobby Fitzgerald said they have decided to host an extra inter-county hurling match as part of the festival at Davin Park this Friday evening.

The match will be between the Tipperary and Wexford Minor Hurling teams. Throw-in will be at 7pm and admission is free.

Mr Fitzgerald said it was brilliant to see so many children at Davin Park last Friday evening to watch the two challenge games, which featured many of Tipperary and Waterford’s star players.

“Davin Park will have hosted the Tipperary Minor, U-21 and Senior hurling teams in a week. It’s a great honour to see these county teams in Carrick-on-Suir,” he said with pride.

Mr Fitzgerald thanked the Swan, Davin and St Molleran’s GAA Clubs, match announced Paddy Finucane, the Carrick-on-Suir Republican Flute Band, The Carraig Hotel and everyone else involved in making the inter-county challenge games last Friday a great success.
