Galway of '17 To Play Team Of '88 In A Very Special Game Tomorrow Evening

Galway of '17 To Play Team Of '88 In A Very Special Game Tomorrow Evening
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

Only a few days have passed since Galway reclaimed the Liam MacCarthy Cup for the first time in 29 years.

However, when most would expect the players, staff and fans involved to still be celebrating, the All-Ireland winners will be taking to Kenny Park in Athenry tomorrow evening at 18.30.

A celebration of other sorts, Galway's current winners are set to take on the last Galway team to achieve the feat ... in 1988.

In an attempt to generate funds for the family of the recently deceased Tony Keady, it is certain to be an exciting evening, with all involved hopeful of a big turnout.

Keady, who was named Hurler of the Year as Galway claimed the 1988 All-Ireland, died suddenly in the days following Galway's semi-final win against Tipperary. Aged 53, it was apparent before, throughout, and after Sunday's final that Keady's death had had a profound impact on the GAA community.

The venue for the game is Kenny Park in Athenry and it'll be only €10 to see what will be a fantastic occasion. If you find yourself in or around Galway tomorrow evening, try to pop in to support a wonderful cause, and have what's sure to some amount of craic.
