Pat Fitzpatrick invites you to come along to look back at some iconic Kilkenny sporting moments. Guests of honour, former Kilkenny senior hurlers Eddie Kerr and Noel Skehan, will attend as an extra special element to a unique event. Eddie played as a centre-forward at senior level for the Kilkenny county team and has received five All Stars Awards and 6 All-Ireland medals. Noel Skehan played as a goalkeeper at senior level for the Kilkenny county team and won nine All-Ireland medals during his time on the team.
