Culture Presentation - Irish Sport and Culture: Punching above its weight

Dr. Sarah Clark (Born & Raised in Cork, Ireland) from the School of Health and Human Performance will present on:

Ireland’s role in world sport is disproportionate to the population of this small Island. Many Irish sportsmen and women from individual and team sports have experienced international success.

The most widely played sports, however, are not international sports. The national indigenous GAA games of Gaelic football and hurling, are true symbols of the Irish identity and played almost exclusively in Ireland. Hurling which has been termed the fastest game on grass, and Gaelic football which is similar to rugby and soccer are played solely by amateur athletes and are followed with great interest throughout the country.
