Hurling is an outdoor team sport of ancient Gaelic origin and played with sticks and a ball. 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.

In Honor of Holly Bulfinch: September 28, 1983-March 27, 2011 RIP


The Akron Gaelic Sports Association extends its deepest sympathy to the family, friends, and teammates of Holly Bulfinch who passed away on Sunday, March 27, 2011.

Holly was a member of the Akron Celtic Guards Hurling Club (GAA), and she was a highly talented camogie player and all round sportsperson. She had a bright future ahead of her not only in camogie but also in soccer, snowboarding, art, and all of her passions. We know that Holly will be sadly missed and it is a shame that this tragedy had to take her away from all of us prematurely. In honor of Holly the Akron hurlers and camogie players will wear commemorative stickers on their helmets.

Specific sympathy is extended to her father Chuck Bulfinch, her mother Lori Kondik, her brothers and sisters, plus her boyfriend and Akron hurler, Michael Steiner. We will all miss her kind and gentle soul.
