It’s March, and that means a slew of articles and news stories are popping up that offer mainstream America a glimpse at hurling and gaelic football.
As one might expect, the various U.S. clubs are happy to oblige with such interview requests. They need all the publicity they can get, and St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect opportunity to talk to America about getting connected to their Irish roots.
Here at Hurley to Rise, I want hear about all these interviews. Send me links to articles, video clips and even radio interviews.
Why send them to me? Well, the more exposure your club gets, the more people will find you.
Just mail your links and information to firstname.lastname@example.org
One new club is located at Kean University in Union, N.J., and the university’s online newspaper featured the club in a helpful article that will help the club recruit new members.
It was especially great that Dave Lewis, the club founder, explained the GAA is more than a sporting league. ““The GAA [Gaelic Athletic Association] community is so supportive of one another and they want the sport to grow and get bigger and make sure people have a very genuine cultural experience.”

Hurling is drawing interest in other English-speaking countries too. Across the globe in Christchurch, New Zealand, there’s a surge in play as Irish ex-pats arrive in the country. Read all about it this article from The Press.
