Our Hurlers Will Hurl For Hope On Saturday

Our Hurlers Will Hurl For Hope On Saturday

Fri, 15th May 2020

The Dublin Hurling squads- from U14 to Senior - and led by the Minors, will ‘Hurl for Hope’ on Saturday, May 16 - hitting half a million sliotars within an hour in the process. 

Building on the fundraising of other Dublin squads, this group of about 250 hurlers will raise money for Pieta House, supporting their Darkness into Light campaign.

The players are very aware that mental health is particularly important during this period. 

As the majority of the population have been asked to stay indoors in the battle to ‘flatten the curve’, anxiety and depression along with other mental illnesses may have risen within our community. 

In organising this event each Minor player dialled the phone numbers and spoke to an Under 20 and a Senior player. It is making all the difference in knitting together our player panels. 

In a similar way the players recognise the importance of lifting the phone and calling a friend, family member or an organisation like Pieta House, when you have worries or anxieties. They are hurling for hope! 

In order for Pieta House to offer as much service and help to people in need during this time, donations are crucial. All donations, no matter what size, make a difference.
