Hurling explained more
Of course, the biggest counties and Dublin which is where the capital city is of course- have a population and therefore talent advantage. Galway, Mayo, Cork and Tipperary as well as Dublin are all extremely successful. But, lots of much smaller counties have been able to take the all-Ireland title too. Anyway, here's a video of what hurling is like. Interestingly the stadium shown here seats 83,500 people. It's something like the third biggest stadium in Europe- quite a feat for one which only showcases amateur sport- and when it's not even a 'full' stadium as one end remains as a terraced end, not allowed to be built up because it would block out natural light for hundreds of houses.
Anyway, bit of a sports lesson maybe as although there are LOADS of GAA clubs in the UK, America and Australia in particular they are pretty much dominated by emigrants from Ireland and have not made the transfer over to the rest of those populations.
