Kilkenny great Henry Shefflin with Gormley Pharmacy inset

Kilkenny hurling legend Henry Shefflin is making a special trip to Kells, County Meath on Monday, November 13th.

Winner of a record ten All-Ireland senior hurling championships with the Black & Amber, Shefflin will be in the heritage town to join in the celebrations as Gormley Pharmacy mark ten years in their new shop.

There will be photo opportunities aplenty when the iconic Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman meets and greet locals at the pharmacy's well-appointed Kells Shopping Centre site between 12:30 and 1:30 in the afternoon.

Afterwards, in his capacity as a Bank of Ireland representative, Shefflin will visit St Colmcille's Boys Primary School in the town to meet staff and pupils. A real treat is in store for the young students as the most decorated hurler in GAA history will then oversee a coaching session in the school.

The historic visit has been organised by Gormley Pharmacy proprietor, David Gormley, who is heavily involved in juvenile coaching in the local Gaeil Colmcille club.
