I did say FIELD sport MikeL, don't know if you've ever watched any Hurling but it is fast, furious and very, very skillful.

The players are all amateurs (they may get boot money) but put every ounce of effort into playing the game. It is rough, brutal at times, and a joy to watch.

** For our American cousins 'boot money' are monies left in players shoe's to cover expenses and not acknowledged by any authorities or the players themselves.
