Jesus but that's a brutal 'sport' and an utterly pointless exercise IMO.

Sure you could say the same about the All Ireland Hurling championship
Still Connacht Champions

I have played in one of hurling-shinty games. They are brutal, We ended up with about 20 odd broken hurling sticks. As pose to the football were they end up with that many broken bones.

Both the hurling and the football internationals are stupid, dangerous and pointless.

lads i play shinty for the university i attend in scotland and it aint a brutal sport in fact u get more injuries playing hurling easily. its cos in shinty the marking is no-where near as tight as it is in hurling and the shinty lads dont get "stuck in" with each other the same way hurlers do when there is a breaking ball.
the reason the hurlers get so many broken sticks against the shinty lads is cos a shinty stick is more solid than a hurl (the scottish uni hurlers played the scottish shinty team as a warm match and yes we did a few sticks)
the only reason that its called brutal is cos when the hurlers get stuck they arent used to a shinty stick's swing which frankly takes everything with it, the shinty lads are just playing the way they usually play as are the hurlers but they both play completely different styles.

I was playing for LJMU, robbed in the final by a ref with a napier fetish! I dont thinks there's much more we could of done.

DO you understand the point in these shinty/hurling games? Its like comparing apples and oranges. They share some of the same traits but there different and its as comparing football and rugby, sure both use a ball!!

Im strongly against the idea of it
