Caroline O Connor, Fundraising & Communication Manager Hand in Hand said ”We are deeply grateful for the support received from Galway GAA and the wider community. This is going to be a wonderful event organised by the Galway Senior Hurling Team and Management. The success of the GAA is rooted in the ethos of community engagement, involvement, support, and assistance which permeates throughout every club the country.   Hand in Hand Children’s Cancer Charity is rooted in the very same belief, co-ordinating all the team players to provide household cleaning, laundry services, family meal deliveries and wrap around supports for families dealing with a childhood cancer diagnosis.  Like every community we are stronger together. Funds raised by this event will go directly towards helping families with practical and emotional supports with a childhood cancer diagnosis. These services are provided FREE of charge to families with a childhood cancer diagnosis undergoing active treatment with emotional services continuing post treatment.”

Michelle Healy, Galway GAA PRO said, “All in Galway GAA are proud to be involved in supporting this worthy event on March 2nd, 2024.  Supporting charities is ingrained in our GAA culture, with clubs, volunteers and players involved many initiatives. I want to pay a special tribute to our Senior Hurlers in coming together to initiate such a wonderful event. We are delighted to be in a position to work with Hand in Hand to help raise awareness about their initiatives and the impact of those. The benefits of this occasion will make a significant contribution to children and their families who are affected by childhood cancer.”

“We are looking forward to lending our time to support the excellent work carried out by Hand in Hand and are delighted to be able to contribute here. We also look forward to meeting all our supporters on the day in Pearse Stadium, we hope to see a large crowd there and would greatly appreciate your support online or on the day for this fantastic cause” said Cianan Fahy, spokesperson for the Senior Hurling organising committee.

Pat McDonagh said that Supermac’s was delighted to be involved with the fundraiser. “I commend the players for taking part in this worthy event,” he said. “It shows a sense of community and togetherness that is an important characteristic of any team.  Supermac’s is delighted to be associated with the Meet and Greet event on Sunday and we are particularly happy that the benefit will go to a children’s charity, Hand in Hand. These players are their hero’s and it will mean a lot to them. We urge everyone to come along on the day to this event and to make a donation to this worthy cause.”
