International Hurling in Galway
« on: September 20, 2013, 11:26:51 AM »
It's a bad week to be trying to get publicity with the All Ireland and everything else, but this is a great competition in Galway - the Aer Lingus International Hurling Festival with teams here from San Francisco, Australia, Europe, Argentina, etc. This is a report and short video from the Australian team based in Ballinasloe. They won yesterday, there's two more group games today and then the Finals in Pearse Stadium tomorrow - http://www.hoganstand.com/HomePage.aspx

I hear NY drew with San Francisco. Must have been some game.

I heard New York were favourites to win the whole thing. Australia were favoured too but they lost tonight by a point to St Gabriel's from London.

Deadly!

How come you're able to get the highlights up do quick? Is somebody else doing the editing?
