Cusack Park – New Voluntary Stewards Needed

        Cusack Park hosts many major games from the GAA calendar each year and has a long standing reputation as a well-run and welcoming venue     among players and spectators from all over Ireland. This is due in no small measure to the professionalism and courtesy of our staff and voluntary     stewards.

The Clare GAA now wishes to recruit additional stewards from the clubs of Clare to add to the existing pool of volunteers.

We would like to hear from club members, male and female, who would like to become involved in this important work for Cusack Park.

A comprehensive programme of training will be provided for all new stewards on Fri 9th Feb @ 7:30 p.m. and Sat 10th Feb @ 10 a.m. in Clare GAA Headquarters in Clareabbey, Clarecastle.

To be part of the match day action, the following criteria is required:

•Aged from 18 years old

•Available at weekends

•Active and enthusiastic

•Customer focused

•An interest in GAA would be beneficial

If you would be interested in getting involved please contact John Fawl on 086  6048823

Clash of Champions set to light up Boston for 2nd AIG Fenway Hurling Classic

posted 5 Oct 2017, 11:28 by John O'Sullivan

      Building off the wildly popular 2015 Fenway match, the AIG Fenway Hurling Classic and Irish Festival will debut a new three-game tournament format when Super 11s hurling returns to the iconic Boston baseball venue, home of the Boston Red Sox, on Sunday, November 19.

     In the first semi-final Galway, who have just completed the 2017 All-Ireland Championship and National League double, will square off against Dublin (12.30pm ET, 5.30pm Irish time).  This is a highly-anticipated rematch of their 2015 Fenway encounter.  

The second semi-final at 1.40pm ET (6.40pm Irish time) sees 2016 All-Ireland Championship winners Tipperary meet 2016 National League champions Clare.

 The winners will collide in the final at 3.00 pm ET (8pm Irish time).  All games will be shown live on TG4 in Ireland and on NESN in the United States.

     Super 11’s is a modified version of hurling which was devised by the Gaelic Players Association (GPA). Played 11 a side, it is fast, exciting and end to end.  A goal inside the designated scoring zone is worth three points, while scoring from outside the zone is worth five points.  This is one of the many innovative rules in this non-stop variation of traditional hurling.  The one-on-one penalty, first introduced in Super 11s and now used in the traditional game, adds further spice while the tap and go free, where a fouled player can tap the ball off his hurley and resume play enhances the game's incredible speed.

     A significant factor in the development of Super 11’s was to allow hurling to be played in stadiums and venues all over the world where field size is invariably smaller than the traditional hurling pitch.  On November 19 Super 11’s will have its third US outing.  Nearly 28,000 fans packed Fenway Park two years ago and even bigger crowds are expected next month as hurling's profile overseas is raised by bringing the ancient Irish game, the fastest game on grass dating back over 2,000 years, to new audiences.

     Showcasing amateur athletes performing at an elite level, it is hoped that this sharp, explosive brand of hurling can develop the game positively for future generations and Irish hurling fans will be able to keep in touch with the action during all three games as it is screened live on TG4 in Ireland and on NESN in the United States.


    Tickets for the AIG Fenway Hurling Classic and Irish Festival, which include all three games of the highly-anticipated tournament, are available at
