The much anticipated All-Ireland Hurling semi-final this Sunday, August 18 between Limerick and Clare will also double up as ‘Family Day’ in Croke Park.
The regular Family Funzone activities, which thousands of supporters have already availed of this year, will be supplemented with live Zorb racing on the field between three families at half-time of the senior game on the Croke Park pitch.
Supporters are reminded the Funzone is free of charge and accessible by all match day ticket holders from 12.30 to 3.00pm. Access is off North Circular Road, just beyond Gill’s pub and from the Russell Street Bridge entrance.
Once again there will be a wide range of activities on offer in the Davin Stand Car Park for all members of the family to engage in. The Liam MacCarthy Cup will be in attendance for photographs, hurling enthusiasts can see the finishing touches being applied to the manufacturing of new hurleys and there is also a climbing wall for the more adventurous supporters!
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill urged families planning to attend Sunday’s game to make some time in their itinerary to drop in on the Family Funzone and embrace the family day atmosphere.
He said: “This weekend supporters from Limerick, Clare and Galway will be in attendance and I hope similarly large numbers as other weekends will avail of what is a safe, family orientated facility that adds greatly to the Croke Park match day experience.”
Supporters are encouraged to avail of these additional services before settling in for the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship semi-final between Limerick and Clare at 3.30pm. In the Electric Ireland minor fixture, Limerick clash with Galway at 1.30pm.
