IT wasn’t just the star hurlers who were mobbed by the fans at this week’s Hurling for Cancer match (see report pages 10-11) at St Conleth’s in Newbridge.


Lineswomen Nina Carberry and Rachael Blackmore were also in demand for photos and autographs. Rachael was still posing and scribbling when the players had left the park.

Well, one player was still there – former Irish international football player Stephen Hunt (silver hair) is seen here finally getting his turn for a photo with Rachael and a family member too.
