Galway Senior Hurling Captain looking forward to Saturday’s Family Fun Day for Hand in Hand

This Saturday will see the Galway Hurlers team up with Loughrea based charity Hand in Hand for a special fundraiser.

The hurlers will be hosting a Family Fun Day event in Pearse Stadium, Salthill from 12-2pm.

They wish to invite all future stars to a “meet and greet” with squad and management members where there will be loads of chances to meet the players, get autographs and selfies and all while supporting a truly deserving cause.

There will also be chances to win some great prizes.

Galway Captain Conor Whelan is one of the hurlers who is looking forward to Saturday.

He spoke to Niall Canavan.
