Extractions: home search help worldguide ... Snow Skiing Hurling isn't what the Irish do when they've had too much Guinness (well, not always). It's actually a mad kind of aerial hockey invented to make the English feel embarrassed about tiggy-touchwood soccer. If you haven't had the twisted pleasure of seeing this example of man's inhumanity to man, head to the Emerald Isle - but keep your head down. This 15-century-old activity pulls no punches. A hurling match is perhaps the fastest spectator sport in the world (with only ice hockey matching it for up-close frenzy). From a distance it resembles a roaming pack-fight between men with thin pale legs and names like Liam and Sean. At ground level it's much more frightening, a kind of 15-a-side escape from the asylum. Hurling is rapid, breakneck and rambunctious. The game moves too fast for the novice to understand anything but the most basic rules, but you can start by imagining an egg-and-spoon race with a pack of enormous angry stick-wielding roosters charging the leader. The aim is to hurtle a pellet-hard ball called a sliotar into goals using a stick with a paddle at its end ( hurley ). The players balance the sliotar on their hurley and then run, hit or bounce it forward, sometimes with all limbs attached.

Extractions: The Minor Hurlers of Carrickmore saw their glorious run of form in the provincial stage end at the Ulster League final stage on Sunday when they fell to Ballycran (Down) at Corrigan Park in Belfast. An impressive win over Antrim champions, Loughgiel, in the semi-final suggested that an historic win was on the cards but the Down side took the honours on a 2-8 to 1-7 scoreline. The Eire Og's will now be concentrating their efforts on the Ulster Minor Club championship, having overcome Dungannon in the Tyrone final a fortnight ago, and will no doubt go into that competition as one of the chief contenders.

Extractions: Hurling T his one of the traditional Gaelic sports, played mainly in Ireland. Irish mythology has tales of legendary heroes who were expert hurlers. The modern game has several similarities to Gaelic football, with the same number of players (15), similar goals and scoring. However, in hurling, the ball or 'sliotar' is about 25cm in circumference and can only be moved across the pitch using the 'hurley' stick. The latter is about 1m long, ending with an 8cm, curved blade. The sliotar can be taken off the hurley, prior to hitting it, but cannot be picked up by hand from the ground. Points are scored when the sliotar is hurled between the posts, scoring 1 point above the cross bar or 3 points into the net below the crossbar ...... more detail...

Extractions: Ireland beat Wales by a single point in the most dramatic fashion to keep their Grand Slam hopes alive, thanks to the steely nerve of Ronan O'Gara. Stephen Jones had given the hosts a two-point lead in second half injury-time with a drop goal, but immediately after the restart, substitute O'Gara kicked a drop of his own from 40 yards. With a single point in it, there was still time for Jones to have another attempt blocked down by Denis Hickie, and Ireland took victory. Offaly end Cork's run
