Description

A three thousand year old Gaelic tradition comes alive during the Guinness All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final, played at Croke Park in Dublin. From across Ireland city teams of fifteen compete in a game that's often said to be the world's fastest field game, combining techniques and skill sets of lacrosse, baseball, and field hockey. It's one of Ireland's favorite sports, and the roots of the national tradition mean Irish folkloric heros have played it too. The primary objective of the game is to drive a ball through an "H" shaped goal post with a wooden stick, and the team with the highest score wins. If you head there, find an Irishman in the enormous stadium to explain the nitty-gritty details, there are just as many rules and stipulations as in most games, as well as an assortment of famous teams and players. But the best part is watching an ancient tradition with a lively audience with a tall frothing Guinness in hand.
