Davy Fitz and Peter Canavan stepped into the breach at the Saffron Business Forum Sport Lunch

Waterford manager Davey Fitzgerald and Tyrone legend Peter Canavan were last minute replacements of Kerry super star David Clifford at Friday’s Saffron Business Forum Sport Lunch at the Crown Plaza Hotel, Shaw’s Bridge. Clifford was unable to attend because of the sad death of his mother last weekend and the two former stars stepped into the breach at the last minute, and an excellent job they did it has to be said.

For Fitzgerald, whose Waterford team actually play his native Clare on Saturday evening in Thurles, it was a real sacrifice, but the Sixmilebridge native has always been willing to give support to the Saffron Business Forum when asked, and Canavan is another who has never let them down. Former Antrim hurling goalkeeper Shane Elliott and former outfield football star Paul McErlean were asking the questions during another highly successful event which is the highlight of the Saffron Business Forum’s year.

There were cheque presentations to the Simon Community and to the Saffron Gael while county chairman Ciaran McCavana, John McGuckian of event sponsors Tughans Solicitors and GAA President Elect Jarlath Burns all addressed the large crowd

The Saffron Gael went along to capture the events of the day
