Hurling is the fastest game on grass, most skilful game in the world. It is also one of the oldest with its traditions set in the mists of ancient Irish history.
It is a stick and ball game, played by teams of 15 on a rectangular grass pitch with H-shaped goals at each end. The primary object is to score by driving the ball through the goals or putting the ball over the bar and thereby scoring a point. Three points is the equivalent of a goal. The team with the highest score at the end of the match wins. It is over 3,000 years old, and is said to be the world’s fastest field game, combining skills from lacrosse, field hockey, and baseball in a hard-hitting, highly paced game.
