Hurling , (97 images)|
Hurling in Dungarvan, Wexford against Waterford.
Hurling is an outdoor team sport of Celtic origin, played with sticks and a ball. The game, played primarily in Ireland, but also in other Irish communities around the world. It is arguably the world's fastest field team sport in terms of gameplay (however the ball travels faster in other field games such as hockey).
I watched my first game on a chilly Sunday, Waterford against Wexford, the league has just started. Waterford won.
