Racing legends reveal the huge amount of money their celebrity hurling match has raised for cancer research

The money just keeps on rolling in.

Back in August Wexford Trainer, Jim Bolger and Cork Jockey, Davy Russell held their annual celebrity hurling match in Newbridge.

Today, on the final day of racing at Leopoardstown they revealed that this year's total came in at just over €100,000.

It means that the Hurling for Cancer Research which began in 2012 has now raised over €400,000 for the Irish Cancer Society’s work in cancer research.
