On St Patrick’s Day, we know the world loves the Irish. So there’s no better time of year to get a few friends together for a puck around on one of Vancouver’s busiest streets.
Nicky Roberts, Robert Dunphy, and Robert Mawe (from Carlow, Kilkenny and Cork respectively) got together at the weekend, to demonstrate hurling in Vancouver’s West Georgia Street.
It formed part of the city’s St Patrick’s Day parade during CelticFest 2016, and we salute the lads’ efforts to bring hurling to a new audience.

It’s the latest example of Canadians being won over by the amazing game of hurling.
