Eve of the All-Ireland Hurling Final 2017 Preview night in Naas GAA Clubhouse

Naas GAA are having their 3rd annual Eve of the All-Ireland final preview night in Naas GAA Clubhouse on Saturday the 2nd of September at 8:15. 

As with the last two times the event was held it, this promises to be a night of deep insight into the minds of the players on the eve of an All Ireland, tactical discussions, player preparations and some great reminiscing on past glory’s. 

There is no doubt that some of the former players will have different memories of incidents and game changing moments which will add to the banter between the panellists.

The event has grown dramatically in the last two years and will continue to do so this year as the invited panellists have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the game. 

Quite a few of whom are in the public eye as commentators, expert witnesses and match analysts.

Our chair again this year is Killian Whlean who will direct the flow of conversation. Damian Lawlor (Sky and RTÉ) will be there to give his insight into the player’s preparations, Cathal Moore of Galway will reflect on the year to date for Galway plus offer his opinion on why it will be Galway’s year. 

Stephen Frampton of Waterford will counter this from the Waterford angle and reinforce the idea that this is the year for the Déise. 

On the neutral side of the debate we have Joe Quaid of Limerick and current Kildare Hurling Manager, Sarah O’Donnovan of Cork and now Dublin as well as the Tipperary native Damien Lawlor.

This year we also have Buff Egan – the social media sensation that is taking hurling reporting on online media to a new high. Buff will entertain with his stories from the side lines, the stand, plus inside and outside the stadiums he visits.

There will be one or two more quests on the night dropping in and will engage with the conversation, recall their pre match rituals and give us an insight to how some of the big names in the past managed their pre All Ireland nerves.

This promises to be the most in depth preview night to date and will be an ideal starting point to the discerning fan to get the inside track on how our experts will predict the outcome of the All-Ireland final.

Naas families will be hosting relatives from both competing counties and it is a great event to bring people together as has happened in the previous two years of this event. 

So come along and have some fun – remember some people whose counties are not competing will be there to savour the atmosphere and no doubt give their opinion on this non-traditional final!
