Hurling in Aoteaora

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 11:45 am on 16 January 2019

Hurling - described as the fastest game on grass - has been played in Ireland for around 4-thousand years. Hurling is the men's stick and ball team sport, women play by the identical rules and it's called Camogie.

It's one of that country's national sports and it's really catching on in New Zealand. So is Irish Gaelic Football. I went along to Ian Galloway park in Wellington to watch training sessions for both sports, as a guest of the Wellington and Hutt Valley GAA club.
