So my dish provider added a sports channel called Setanta Sports which shows a lot of soccer and rugby. I love soccer (as we call it here in the States) so this is a great add to the channel lineup. I am starting to enjoy rugby, even though I do not understand the rules. However the two sports that I have watched, I have NO clue as to what is going on....make that three if you add in AFL. The games make no sense at all. I am talking about Hurling and Gaelic Football. Can any of our Irish friends explain these sports? Hurling seems like field hockey that meets soccer and rugby. Gaelic Football seems to be like soccer and rugby combined. How close am I to these two The rules, the scoring...especially the scoring. I was watching a Hurling match the other day with Limerick and somebody else and the score was something like 0-2 to 8-12 or something like that. What does that mean? How popular are these two sports. I could not get an idea of how big the stadiums were and how many people were there.
