Dillon Quirke Foundation
A foundation has been set up in honour of the late Dillon Quirke who collapsed and died of SADS on the 5th of August 2022 in Semple Stadium Thurles. He was playing hurling for his club Clonoulty-Rossmore in the County championship. 

Sudden adult death syndrome (SADS) takes 100 young lives in Ireland every year. The aim of the foundation is to raise awareness and save lives by screening every GAA player both male and female from the age of 12 upwards.
