Friday May 17 – A feast of Tipperary v Waterford hurling promised in Maurice Davin Park, Carrick-on-Suir

Davin Park, Carrick-on-Suir will host two very attractive hurling tournament games between Tipperary and Waterford on Friday  next May 17. These games are part of the Maurice Davin commemoration events which will culminate in the unveiling of a statue of the GAA founder and first President in his native town on Saturday June 1.

The two games are Tipperary v Waterford in under 21 hurling at 6pm and in senior hurling at 7.30pm.


Waterford and Tipperary are expected to field two very strong sides for the senior game at 7.30pm. Both sides are only weeks away from Munster championship action and it will be the last opportunity to test out their form in advance of the major games ahead. There is huge rivalry between both counties in particular in the areas surrounding the banks of the Suir and in the town of Carrick itself where there are divided loyalties. The senior game will be preceded at 6pm by Tipperary and Waterford in under 21 hurling where some of the finest emerging talent from both counties will be on display as both counties also prepare for Munster championship action at this grade. A bumper crowd is expected to fill Davin Park for the occasion.


The senior game will be refereed by James Owens (Wexford) and the under 21 game by Paddy Ivors (Ballingarry).


Admission €10. Students & senior citizens €5 with identification. No passes except press passes accepted for this game.


Special parking and traffic arrangements will be in place for the game and supporters are encouraged to come early and obey stewards and Gardai.
