Chance of lifetime for one lucky club

One of the sponsors of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship is looking to send a club to Australia to play the challenge match of a lifetime.
Etihad Airways is asking clubs to nominate their greatest achievement, whatever they believe it to be.
The winning club will get its first team flown to Australia, where they will train with Tipperary legend Nicky English ahead of the challenge game.
On October 28, the 'Best Club Down Under' will play an Australian select team as the curtain raiser for the Ireland versus Australia International Rules match at the Etihad Stadium, Melbourne.
Every club in the country is invited to nominate itself to become the 'Best Club Down Under' and the public will then be asked to vote for the club they feel deserves to win.
To enter this year's competition, log onto www.etihadgaa.ie and fill out the form to nominate your club.
