A special event is being held in Clare next month to mark the 25th anniversary of the ’95 All Ireland Winning Hurling Team.
It aims to raise funds for Club Clare, which supports the development of hurling in this county.
It was the year the curse of Biddy Early was broken, and a time that forever changed the face of Clare Hurling.
The Banner took All Ireland Senior Hurling glory for the first time in over eight decades following a historic day at Croke Park.
It gave a new lease of life to the sport, with the hurlers going on to win again in 1997, with further success in 2013.
Commentator Marty Morrissey says that faithful day in 95 changed everything.
Clare hurling legend, All Star and two time All Ireland Champion Jamesie O’Connor was a key member of that 95 team – he says its’a time that people reflect fondly on.
A special event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the historic win is taking place on Saturday, March 14th and all funds raised will go towards Club Clare, which was set up to support the development of Clare Hurling.
To date, 347,000 euro has been raised by Club Clare, with the money being invested in hurling of all grades from under 14s up to senior development squads.
Former Chairperson and Committee member, John Kerin says fundraising is vital in keeping the sport going and he’s positive for a bright future for hurling in Clare.
