For the first time ever, three of Galway’s hurling heroes will be on stage together on Saturday November 23 at the Galmont Hotel in Galway for a very special event celebrating their incredible contribution to the game.
The evening will feature an in-depth interview with all three former Hurler of the Year award winners and a look at their amazing careers in the maroon and white.
“I’m hugely honoured to be part of this very special event and can’t wait to share the stage with Joe and John,” said Joe Canning, All-Ireland winner with Galway in 2017.
“It promises to be a fantastic night for Galway hurling,” added Joe Cooney, All-Ireland winner with Galway in 1987 and 1988.
“I enjoyed every minute of my hurling life and I’m really looking forward to this hugely exciting event in November,” revealed John Connolly, All-Ireland winner with Galway in 1980.
The event, sponsored by McHugh’s Pub & Restaurant, EZ Living Furniture, and DNG Maxwell Heaslip and Leonard, will include a champagne drinks reception, a premium dining experience, and an action-packed show with a number of high-profile panels along with the three Galway greats.
Among the guests will be Michael Duignan, Anthony Daly, Tommy Walsh, and Tomás Mulcahy. Also, on stage will be former Republic of Ireland footballer Niall Quinn who lined out for Dublin in the 1983 All-Ireland minor hurling final defeat to Galway. MC on the night will be RTE analyst and former Galway camogie star Aislinn Connolly.
There will be lots of entertainment too including The Galway Tenors and a very special performance from Riverdance star and current Kerry senior footballer Tomás Ó Sé.
There are a limited number of tables and individual tickets still available.
All funds raised are going to Castlegar Indoor Sports Arena.
