PwC Hurling All-Stars depart for tour to U.A.E


A 27-strong panel, including some of the biggest names in hurling, today flew out from Dublin travelling to Abu Dhabi where they will embark on a five-day PwC All-Star hurling tour.

The touring panel is made up of 2018 and 2019 All-Stars and nominees and it also includes a number of representatives from the Champions 15 team.

In all there are players from 13 different counties in the travelling party, with the feature event scheduled for the Zayed Sports City on Saturday afternoon (local time) where exhibition hurling and camogie matches will be played by local players before a game between the visiting All-Star teams.

All-Ireland winning manager Liam Sheedy will manage the 2019 selection with former Cork manager John Meyler looking after the 2018 team.

Referee James Owens is joined on the tour by David Gough and Conor Lane.

A highlight of the tour will be the post-match reception which will be hosted by the Irish Ambassador to the U.A.E, Mr. Aidan Cronin, at his residence on Saturday evening.

The Middle East GAA Board and Abu Dhabi Na Fianna will host the touring party.
