Hurling is a passion of Ireland and is considered to be one of the most skilful sports played today. It is an outdoor field sport in which teams of 15 use an axe-shaped stick to hit a ball between the opponentsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ goal-posts, either over the bar for one point or under the bar for three points. When first watching a hurling match, elements of the game appear to resemble lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, and soccer, and as one becomes familiar with the sport, one will recognize that a good hurler uses many skills, requiring fitness, ambidextrous hand-eye co-ordination, agility, strength, bravery, and teamwork.
