We already know that the locals in Canada love hurling, so the next logical step was to have Canadians play hurling and try it for themselves.
Step forward, David Wogan. David is originally from Dublin, and has been living in Toronto since 2012. He made the move with his girlfriend, Miranda, whom he met while studying at Dublin City University.
David’s involved with a YouTube channel called Play Hurling, which aims to bring the game to a global audience.
“We all play and watch it as kids, but once you go beyond Irish shores, nobody has heard of it,” David told Moving2Canada.
“I’ve been living in Toronto for the past three years and, every time I play hurling, I instantly get talking to a local Torontonian eager to learn more about the sport. I wanted to get Canadian athletes to try hurling, so I reached out to the University of Toronto lacrosse teams and they loved every minute of it.”
