The Hurling For Cancer Research celebrity hurling match is one of the best fundraising nights of the year. The great and the good of the Irish sporting world again descended on Newbridge last night as Jim Bolger and Davy Russell's All Stars went head to head. The likes of Niall Quinn, Stephen Hunt and Ruby Walsh jostled with intercounty stars like Lee Chin and Chris Crummy. Bolgers men won in the end.
