Hurling’s debut on Sky Sports 3 yesterday meant the age-old sport was brought to a mainstream British audience for the first time.
No one was expecting the reaction it received as British viewers were equally amazed and confused.
Have a look at some of the best reactions below:
Mad mix of the best bits of hockey,rugby,golf and 'keepie-ups'. Played with huge versions of the things you shape butter with #hurling
