The game, played primarily in Ireland, is arguably the world's fastest field team sport in terms of game play and is Ireland's national sport. We're currently looking for people that are interested in playing the great game of hurling.

Akron Feis | Club Volunteers Needed

Our sponsor, the AOH Mark Heffernan Div. #2 (Brown Street), has asked for our assistance once again for the Akron Feis, an annual dance competition, at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge.

  • Friday, May 26th - 4 pm (or whatever time you can come after work)
  • Sunday May 28th - Immediately after practice (practice will be held at the fairgrounds to make it easy for volunteers)

They need help unloading, assembling, and tearing down their stages used in the competition. Bring your power tools and help out. Food and beverages are usually provided to the volunteers! We always have a good time, and the more people that come, the faster the "work" goes.
