An exciting feature of the Thurles Sarsfields International Hurling Festival being staged in the town on Munster hurling final week-end, July13th/14th, is the inclusion of wheelchair hurling.

This is a initiative from Croke Park designed to broaden the inclusiveness of hurling by enabling all who follow the sport to participate in it if they so wish. Played mainly in the Dublin area now, its inclusion in the Sarsfields festival is by way of a re-launch of the game in Tipperary where there were teams a few years ago. See this weeks Tipperary Star for full details.
