First Hurling Match

View Spring Term in Ireland on Caitlin39's travel map.

Today we were taken to our very first hurling match. Hurling is a Gaelic sport that is reminiscent of Lacrosse, Hockey, and Baseball. It is the fastest field sport in the world, and is absolutely amazing to watch. Its a contact sport, and its hard to believe that the only required protection is a helmet. (and they only instituted that rule this year!)

The match was between Waterford and Limerick, so we obviously were rooting for Waterford. There were at least three injuries during the game, one where the keeper had to be taken off the field on a stretcher! It was a lot of fun to watch, and must take a lot of skill to play.
