How excited I was to see the article on the UM Griz hurlers and their national collegiate hurling championship!
I returned late last night from a two-week trip to Ireland with my Callahan siblings and nine other family members. While going through my pile of mail, I came across the latest issue of the Montanan[Fall 2014] and had to take a few minutes to page through. How excited I was to see the article on the UM Griz hurlers and their national collegiate hurling championship!
While in Ireland I was able to attend the GAA All-Ireland Senior Championship Hurling match at Croke Park Stadium in Dublin. Attendance was more than 82,000. Thirteen of us got to attend the match, and we all had fabulous seats. Taxi drivers, bartenders, and the hotel staff were all surprised we were able to get tickets, so I feel very blessed to have attended.
What a fast-paced, fun game to watch. I’m not sure how it all works, but it was exciting. I will be checking out next year’s Griz hurling schedule and would love to attend a match. I would suggest all Griz fans find out more about this traditional Irish sport now being played here in Montana.
