People who bought tickets for the Saturday will be automatically refunded by Ticketmaster this week.”

Sergeant added, “We are very much looking forward to the arrival in Sydney this week of Galway and Kilkenny who will battle it out for the Wild Geese Trophy. More than 10,000 are expected for what is going to be an historic occasion with two of Ireland top teams competing in the world’s fastest field sport of Hurling.

“To make sure fans still enjoy the festival experience we are adding some entertainment and activities to the Sunday which means Sunday will be a bumper day for all concerned. A full updated schedule of Sunday’s entertainment will be available soon at www.sydneyirishfestival.com.”
