The sliotar can be caught in the hand and carried for not more than four steps, struck in the air, or struck on the ground with the hurley. It can be kicked or slapped with an open hand (the hand pass) for short-range passing. A player who wants to carry the ball for more than three steps has to bounce or balance the sliotar on the end of the stick and the ball can only be handled twice while in his possession.

    Hurling and Camogie - An Introduction
    By Bernd Biege , About.com Guide

    An early start pays off in hurling ... zSB(3,3) Hurling is regarded as one of the fastest ball-games in the world - and to the uninitiated a first encounter may also beckon forth the attributes "chaotic" and "brutal". Sometimes hurling is confused with hockey. This confusion only lasts until one realizes that charging players occasionally wield their hurleys like lethal weapons of messy destruction. Quite within the rules in most cases.
    A Basic History of Hurling
    Hurling has been declared illegal several times - the Statutes of Kilkenny (1336) and Galway (1527) outlawed the game. Maybe due to the fact that acquired hurling skills might come in handy in a close combat situation. Nonetheless hurling remained popular in Dublin, Leinster, Munster, in Galway and parts of Ulster. After the rebellion of 1798 hurling activities became restrained and by the middle of the 19th century it was a minority interest. Strangely enough Trinity College still was a hotbed of activities, though played to rules more reflecting hockey than tradition.

    The Haggis Address to a Haggis Wild Haggis Haggis Hurling ... Haggis hurling is claimed to be a traditional Scottish sport. It is said that the haggis would be prepared for lunch for the man of the family who was out working the croft or cutting peat, by his wife. Scotland is known as a land of rivers and bogs, so walking from the crofthouse to the place of work could often entail a long way round to cross a river or low lying ground. In these cases the wife would throw the cooked haggis to the husband, who would catch it using the front apron of his kilt . If he dropped it, he either went hungry; or spent the afternoon scraping his lunch off a rock; or spent the afternoon scraping bits of peat off his lunch. According to the Guinness Book Of Records, the present World Record for Haggis Hurling is held by Alan Pettigrew of Saltcoats.

    Irish Hurling A True Amateur Game
    The game of hurling is more than just a game it is Ireland's national passion. But to appreciate hurling, one must look beyond the mere fact that it is a sport, because it is much more. Countering the trend towards big-money professional athletics, hurling has remained strictly amateur. It is a game played purely for the fun and history of it. It is a game woven deeply into the social fabric of the Irish people. Which is amazing when one considers just how extraordinarily dangerous the game is. First, the basics. Hurling is best compared to lacrosse. Hurling is an outdoor ball-and-stick game played with fifteen players on a field larger than a soccer pitch. Whereas lacrosse is played with netted sticks, hurling is a played with a flat wooden club, and the ball is struck by swinging the stick vice flinging it as in lacrosse. Hurling players can catch and carry the ball in the hand, but can only pass it by hitting it with the stick, kicking it, or slapping it by the hand. As you can surmise from the first photo, the object is to drive the ball either into a soccer-sized goal or 'over the bar'. A goal is worth three, over the bar is worth one. The common tactic is to accumulate single points, chasing goals only when a clear opportunity presents. An average senior-league score would be about 22-18, with three-to-five goals averaged per game.

    Pics from Under 10 Shield Final Carnmore news Carnmore retained their senior status by defeating Killimordaly in a very good hurling match
    played in Kenny Park. The final score might suggest a one sided game but Killimordaly fought very hard, however the loss of Eanna Ryan through injury was a big blow to them while Carnmore got goals at vital times.
    Shane Hynes and George Hanley goaled in the first half and Danny Cummin's took his goal well in the second and these were added to by some very good points. The reds hunted in packs on every occasion when Killimordaly were in poccession and turned over alot of ball.
