Long Puck Competition
Dan, Hazel, Shannon and Kellie Quirke have launched The Dillon Quirke Foundation in an effort to raise awareness and save lives by screening every G.A.A. player, both male and female, from the age of 12 upwards. By doing so, they hope to prevent other families from going through the heartache of losing a precious family member.
The Kilruane MacDonaghs club is holding a Long Puck Competition in MacDonagh Park this Saturday, 4th February, at 11.00am. The entry fee is €10 and all proceeds go to the Dillon Quirke Foundation. The winner will go forward to represent the club in the County final, which will be held in Clonoulty in February. The top two in the County final plus the top two in the Kilkenny competition will play the final of this Long Puck Competition during half time in the Tipperary and Kilkenny League match on Sunday, 19th February in Semple Stadium. These four players will be presented with a specially designed Dillon Quirke Foundation jersey, in their county colours, with the winner receiving the Dillon Quirke trophy.
