Here in the States, hurling and camogie still feel like a secret club that only a few are privileged to join. It’s not that we don’t want everyone to learn about and play Gaelic games, it’s just that so many have yet to discover the passion and skill we all feel. That’s why it’s so exciting to scroll through Twitter and see mentions from people who either already love the game or have just discovered it. At times, we see tweets that fill us with pride, while others make us laugh out loud.
We’d like to share a few of our favorites. Enjoy!

Watching this Irish Hurling on sky sports confirms my belief that the Irish are mental.

Mad enough to risk an exploded testicle. So, even madder than you think.
English guy in pub who’s watched the hurling on Sky Sports; “mad sport, it’s a bit Game of Thrones, Innit?” #GAA
