Some hurling facts that everyone may not know.

A uniquely Irish game, Hurling is one of the world’s oldest field sports and has been played in some form in Ireland for more than 800 years.  It is often compared to hockey but other than the fact that both games involve a stick and a ball there is no similarity.  The curved wooden stick with a flat end is known as a hurl or hurley, or in Irish a camán [say:come-awn], and is made from a single piece of wood, traditionally Ash.
