The Stages of Falling in Love with Irish Sports

Hey, you. Yeah, you over there, hiding behind the tree. We see you watching. Don’t worry, everyone looks like that the first time they see hurling or Gaelic football.

Once you get past the initial shock and really start to pay attention to what’s going on, an even deeper amazement will set in. You probably won’t be able to believe your eyes.

But that’s okay. It’s normal, I promise. Someone will probably approach you at this point to ask if you want to give it a shot. You might run away. A lot of people do.

And that’s okay, too. But we know you’ll be back, watching from behind the trees.

You won’t be able to help yourself.

via GIPHY

Because the bug has already bitten you. You’re going to learn Irish sports.

So, you come out to give it a shot, even though you say you’ve never really been good at sports.

And even though you have absolutely no idea what’s going on.

But after one training, you know you’ve found your people.

So you go home and start training like crazy.

via GIPHY

And you bring out all your friends, too. Who can learn about Irish sports and not want to share?!

via GIPHY

And then you score your first point. There’s no turning back now.

You’re in love, and you don’t care who knows it!

Does this sound like you? Sign up for our hurling league now, and come out to one of our training sessions. On August 29, we’ll hold our final park tour date at Centennial Park, so you should have plenty of other new players to join. If you can’t make that, we’ll have training again on August 31. Just watch the Facebook page to keep track of any future dates. We can’t wait to meet you!
