The Guardian’s brief Hurling article

The Guardian’s brief Hurling article

I, unlike the vast majority of other Irish people, was never a fan of Hurling. Despite this, I always appreciated the dedication shown by the athletes of the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) – Hurlers, Footballers, Camogie players and Handball players. These players draw audiences in the hundreds for local matches, and upwards of 80,000 for the Football and Hurling finals (See last Saturday’s All-Ireland Hurling final between Cork and Clare), yet are unpaid by the clubs and counties they play for, and are rarely, if ever, in the newspapers for negative reasons. I’m glad that the Guardian decided to give it a tiny moment in the sun, albeit through a slightly cheesy paragraph.
