Hundreds of kids on the pitch after Carlow draw with Galway

https://www.balls.ie/gaa/kclr-commentary-carlow-galway-draw-2019-405470

"This could be the most important point in Carlow hurling history," declared KCLR's Brendan Hennessy on commentary for the game.
Hennessy's account perfectly captured a great day for the Carlow hurlers as they gained their first point of this season's league.
Forward to 1:05:30 to hear the closing minutes of the game with the sides level at 18 points each.

Annoyingly, GAAGO took last years games down just as I was about to make the video, it can be hard enough getting quality GAA footage (you'd think they'd make it easier for fans like, the NBA has realised it's actually a good way to grow the game)...but this means that the clips are from all over the show (some not as good quality as I'd like), but hopefully the video turned out well.

Just another general tribute to our wonderful sport, so a mixture of old and new clips. I had done a few videos a couple of years back, but just took a notion to make another one.

Any suggestions or tips for future vids are welcome :)


Great work. There's a lot of nice slo mo footage out there now that you can mix up nicely.

Personally I don't believe in using trad Irish music for hurling videos. It's not just that traditional isn't my cup of tea, I feel like the pace of the music doesn't quite fit the energy of hurling or match the pace of it. I also try to avoid portraying it as just an Irish sport for Irish people, it's much more than that.

Cheers man. Seems to divide people the use of Irish music, I don't intend to suggest that it's solely for Irish people, but it is nevertheless a fact that it is an Irish sport. I have used other music in one of my older vids, but it's not exactly super pump-up music either -

I think some traditional stuff works well, but I probably won't for the next one I do.

FYI...GAAGO takes down the year's shows on 30 Nov each year.

It's not all didlyi

The best stuff comes in a range of speeds

And the music and the sport are world class imo so they are a good fit

Sir, – Of course it’s a hurley, It’s what Christy Ring used.
When growing up in Cork, each holiday morning (the sun always shone) I ventured forth with my hurley. Of course, we played hurling on the nearby waste ground. However, on hot days cricket was played. It goes without saying, there was no such thing as a cricket bat, so the hurley made a handy substitute. On the same waste ground when sport was finished, the cavalry took on the Indians (Native Americans) and the hurley was then deployed as an excellent Springfield rifle. When staging the great second World War battles the hurley was used as the principal rifle by both sides. In jungle warfare, the hurley was also deployed as a machete to cut through the dense undergrowth.
Discussing this with a friend from South Tipperary he shared that the hurley (not hurl) was used as a putter for pitch and putt, a samurai sword, an aid to herding sheep, a way to transgender a ladies’ bike by using it as a bar and as a flagpole for the top of the sandcastle. The latter was important for townies from Clonmel who got to visit Clonea beach just a few times in the year. Tell that to the youth of today. Did the wise men meeting in Hayes Hotel, Thurles have any idea what they were unleashing? – Yours etc.,
