A while since I posted. I have just watched the first game of hurling I have seen in a number of years. Its a phenominal sport that former soccer
player Alan Shearer has described as " a combination of hockey and murder".
The speed and physicality involved are biblical in its intensity, and it is hard to swallow that it is predominatly amateur. It is an ancient game
that has evolved through millenia to its modern format.
See link for a brief history of the sport:
Also I will attach a couple of youtube links to example of it on youtube for your perusal.
I will also attach some quotes about it:
It is an absolute gladitorial sport and I was just wondering what the outside world (non irish) opinions were of it.
