An Irish Hurling Match

@Manuel Zelaya[/USER] and [USER=706]@Fagan ODowd may enjoy this.

If there’s a general want for snippets of articles on hurling from 18/19th century i’ll get onto @Mark Renton to post them up - I know he has a good few saved somewhere.

Did I send you the court report item arising from a fracas in a hurling game on st stephens day 1839 in kilteely?

Plus ca change and all that…

I enjoyed that CM. Thank you. Interesting to see that over 200 years ago jostling was a factor in hurling.

@Fagan ODowd groups of gentlemen seemed to have played the game in the late 18th century but by and large had abandoned it in the 19th, I have my own thoughts on that but I’ll stick up a few more interesting bits tomorrow[/QUOTE]

I made a balls of that reply there. Fuck my life.

The Phoenix Park and Stephen’s Green were both hurling strong holds :clap:

200 Guineas? Fucking hell, surely that would have been an extraordinary amount at that time?
