A host of talented All Stars including D.J. Carey, Noel Hickey, Eddie Brennan, Tommy Walsh, Ken McGrath, Tony Browne, Eoin Kelly, Fergal Hartley, Paul Flynn, John Mullane and Dan Shanahan will form two dream teams.
Adding to the electric atmosphere will be the appearance of veteran broadcaster Micheal O Muirthertigh who will be the guest of honour.
Dickie Murphy will referee on the day and the Thomas Francis Meagher pipe band will also be making a special appearance.
€10 entry for the day and children under 16 are free and all proceeds will be donated to Teac Tom and Pieta House, who are both charities that promote mental health.
Hurling giants, Brian Cody and Jim Greene, who are both 1982 GAA All-Stars for their respective counties recently launched the event.
