Hurling and Gaelic Football

There are a lot of Irishmen at the hostel at present. And like a lot of true Irishmen they love their native games.

Declining mortality from congenital heart disease in Malta. A teenager who is one of the claimants in the civil action was diagnosed as having a mental condition by Mr Berg during a home visit to his mother. Mother and son have claimed they were prescribed dangerous and inappropriate drugs by Mr Berg, who treated 259 patients during his year's employment at Townsville hospital in 2000. Despite hospital authorities learning that Mr Berg's Russian qualifications were fake in late 2002, his former patients were informed only through the Morris and Davis inquiries that arose out of the Dr Death scandal. The inquiries heard that authorities took the decision not to tell patients about Mr Berg because they feared it could lead to them stopping their medication and counselling or even attempting suicide. The three former patients - one of whom claims she has attempted suicide three times as a result of Mr Berg's treatment and medication - are seeking more than $1 million in damages. Looking at Figures 1, 2, and 3, a crucial observation is that the distinction between pain medication online without prescription different research areas is visible not only in the structure of the maps but also in the colors of the terms. In general, in the right part of each map, in which the more basic and diagnostic research areas are located, there are many yellow, orange, and red terms, which clearly indicates an above-average citation impact. As indicated by the color bar in the lower right in Figures 1, 2, and 3, yellow and orange correspond with a citation impact that is, respectively, about 25% and about 50% above the average of the field. Red corresponds with a citation impact that is 100% or more above average. On the other hand, in the left part of each map, research areas can be found with mainly blue and green terms, implying a below-average citation impact.

Hurling - canadiana backpackers Inn toronto hostelsOne of our guests goes outside to play with his “Hurley” and “Sliotar” which I suppose corresponds to the hockey stick and puck in our National Sport. He brought these things to Canada with the hope of finding a team to join.

Damien is here on a working/holiday visa and, as a result, intends to be here for the better part of the year. Sadly, he found out that no one participates in the sport of Hurling in Canada.

In Hurling, players use an axe-shaped wodden stick “Hurley” or “Hurl” and a ball called a “Sliotar” (pronounced “Slitt-er) to try to put the ball over goalposts for a point or under the posts for three points.

The sport predates the recorded history of Ireland and is arguably the fastest team sport in terms of game play. As one of Ireland’s native Gaelic Games, it shares a lot with Gaelic Football such as; the field; goals; number of players and a lot of the terminology.

Fortunately, they do play Gaelic Football here in Canada. Damien and another Irish working visa lad by the name of Paul have each joined one of the six Toronto area teams. Paul is heading off to Ottawa this weekend to play a team located in the Capital City.

Gaelic Football has certain similarities with Australian Rules Football or “Footie” as he Aussies call it. The field is a different shape and the ball isn’t the same either.

Apparently, there are enough similarities that an “International” form of the game can be played (with modified rules).

Like “Footie” Gaelic Football can get pretty rough. So we’ll try to get a photo of Paul when he comes back from Ottawa if he’s all banged up!

A typical defensive formation in Gaelic Football; but, to the untrained eye has all the tactical sophistication of a street fight!
