Hurler on the hill

Regular visitors to the blog will remember this blog post from July this year http://glormhicairt.blogspot.com/2009/07/hurling-on-hill.html

It was even carried on BBC Politics Editor Mark Davenport's Blog http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markdevenport/2009/07/following_in_carsons_footsteps.html

But I came across this interesting image over on Máirtín Ó Muilleor's Blog of well known Hurler and GAA enthusiast Edward Carson:


  1. Unfortunately some people have concluded that Edward Carson played 'Gaelic' hurling. The hurling Carson played had nothing to do with Gaelic sports. 'Hurling' in those days referred to what is the antecedent of hockey and had no connection with Ireland.

  2. Shane a chara,

    Come on now, he played Hurling while at Trinity College Dublin.

    Hurling is Hurling, it's a Gaelic Sport and s core element of the GAA.
