Irish Hockey
« on: August 02, 2018, 07:05:41 PM »
Just watching our Girls on the TV playing India in the World Cup QF.

Anyway, my girl who play Camoige asks me ''What game is that?''

''Hockey'' I tell her!

To which she reply's ''It's looks like it's (Hockey) to Soccer what Hurling is to Gaelic football!''

Never knew it was so hard to score a penalty in hockey.

Been watching hockey (womenís) for over 10 years, kids play for Ulster Elks and school, the standard at senior level is top class, turning your hand to hockey from a hurling background may seem easy but itís harder that you think do hats off to the Coleraine girl!

Isn't it an all-Ireland team? Same as Cricket? Soccer seems to be a bit of an outlier in Irish sport with the partition thing.

The Dutch play professionally and in the Olympics they were favourites but the GB team beat them in a thrilling game.. but from what Iíve read they are flying at the minute
