The ancient game of Hurling has been played in Ireland for over two thousand years and over time has evolved into the world’s fastest field sport. Ireland’s sporting culture is defined by the popularity of this game and for many visitors to our shores a chance to see a ‘game’ is never missed.
The Orchard Centre’s Hurling Workshop is a unique opportunity to learn and experience the skills associated with the sport. An experienced player of the game takes the participants through a series of exercises where all will develop their own particular style.
At the end of the workshop session the participants will have the opportunity to try their skills in a real scoring competition.
Duration 1.5 to 2 hours
