Kilkenny win the title

Well done Kilkenny Kats - a brilliant win at the All Ireland Final. Never seen Hurling before but what a good game it is.

 

 

The lovely town of Kilkenny, which is also the seat of the Butler family (though I have no Irish blood that I know of) had just about every shop, bank, pub - even the churches - decked out in support of the local Club playing in the final when we visited the other day.  So when I saw the game on TV, I watched.  It came from a full Croke Park and watched by around 82,000 crowd.

 

It's a brilliant sport though I wouldn't be brave enough to play it. It's sort of rugby, with a small hard ball which you hit with a paddle type hockey stick and catch. It makes Aussie Rules Football look like a pansies game.

 

Now we are looking for our first order from a Hurling team.
