Niall Donohue Memorial Match

On Saturday, 10 December 2022, Galway’s biggest hurling stars will play the Niall Donohue Memorial Match in memory of the Kilbeacanty and Galway hurling player.

Niall tragically died in October 2013 and in his memory, his family, fellow players, club and the Galway county board have come together to arrange this hurling match.
