The Match Day Sandwich: What is in yours?

Find out what these hurlers have in theirs!

Ahhhh the match day sandwich. Are you even at a GAA match if you don’t have a sandwich, before, during or after the game?

They are traditionally eaten whilst you are perched in the boot of the car or on the bus while a post-match analysis takes place, before you hit the road to make it home in time for The Sunday Game!

Sound familiar?

We asked some inter-county hurlers what do they have in their match day sandwiches when they aren’t playing. And you would be surprised, some don’t even have a sandwich at all!

Jason Forde – Tipperary

“It has to be some chicken with cheese!”

Aaron Gillane – Limerick

“I would be plain enough now and just have ham and cheese!”

Conor Whelan – Galway

“It would be chicken, mayonnaise and cheese.”

Anthony Nash – Cork

“I wouldn’t have a sandwich, I prefer scrambled eggs and beans!”

Eoin Murphy – Kilkenny

“It would have to be Luncheon meat! We were always given that as children. Also, it would be a ‘luncheon blaa’ rather than a sandwich! I went to college in Waterford, and we are south Kilkenny, it is a local dish! A blaa is a floury, soft bap!”

Diarmuid O’Keeffe – Wexford

“Fresh wholemeal bread with baked ham and avocado.”

Shane Dowling – Limerick

“It would have to be chicken, ham and cheese. With ketchup as well!”

Peter Duggan – Clare

“I wouldn’t have a sandwich. I would always have a big huge breakfast. I would have salmon, scrambled eggs, toast. And then I would only something small after!”
