The game, in Ballyduff Upper, Waterford, is the final phase of a six-month fundraising campaign for hurler Pa Kearney, who sustained serious injuries in a car accident last October.
The 22-year-old corner forward, who represented Waterford at minor, U21 and senior, has undergone a number of operations and has spent time recuperating at the National Rehabilitation Institute in Dun Laoghaire.
The Ballyduff club rallied magnificently to his cause and a series of fundraising events have raised a substantial amount to help alleviate the cost of Kearney’s medical expenses.
Meantime, a number of second round of games in the group stage of the Waterford senior hurling championship will also be played this weekend including an attractive double-header at Dungarvan’s Fraher Field tomorrow.
Champions Ballygunner make their first appearance of the campaign against Fourmilewater, while Lismore and Passage East, both of whom were first round winners last weekend, meet in the game of the weekend.
Later that evening the Cappoquin venue hosts Tallow and Dungarvan, and having shocked Mount Sion in their opening tie last Sunday, Tallow will be favourites for victory.
The remaining fixture is the meeting of Abbeyside and Ballyduff Upper at Cappoquin this evening. This will be Abbeyside’s first outing in the campaign, against a Ballyduff side who accounted for De La Salle last weekend.
