If you’re at all interested in hurling, gaelic football or Irish culture, stop by and give it a try. All equipment is provided for newbies. It’s also important to know that adults of all ages are welcome to play. I’m 37, and I’ve gone up against American-born players who were at least 10 years older than me, so don’ let that be a factor.
Elsewhere: If you’re from nowhere near South Central Pennsylvania or the Baltimore Area, check my page link for a list of U.S. clubs. There’s a surprising number of hurling and gaelic football teams here in the U.S., so you might just find one nearby.
Finally, if you participate in a club, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll list your club.
