GAA Matches Called Off Following Death Of Hurler In Semple Stadium Thurles.

All GAA games due to be played in Co. Tipperary, this weekend, have now been cancelled as a mark of respect, following the death of inter-county hurler Mr Dillon Quirke; who sadly collapsed during a club match at Semple Stadium here in Thurles on Friday evening last.

Mr Quirke’s club ‘Clonoulty-Rossmore’ were playing ‘Kilruane McDonaghs’ when the 24-year-old sportsman suddenly collapsed just before half-time. Mr Quirke was immediately treated by medics, before being rushed to Tipperary University Hospital, Clonmel.

Tipperary GAA, in extending their sincere heartfelt sympathies to Dillon’s family, friends and clubmates, also wish to thank all those who attended to Mr Quirke, both in Semple Stadium and in Tipperary University Hospital, Clonmel.
