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.

It was another great time at the Indy Invitational this year! The Akron Hurling team played well, and had great matches against St. Louis, Indy 2, and Indy 3. Akron lost the shield to Indy 2 after ending regulation tied. Meanwhile, our Camogie girls played with St. Louis Camogie to create "St. Akron Camogie"! They fought hard against Indy and St. Mary's to do Akron proud! The memories of the matches and afters will be truly cherished by all those who made the trip to Indianapolis. There are too many thanks to go around, but specifically, the Akron Celtic Guards whould like to thank the Indy GAA for another successful and fun tournament! We would also like to thank the St. Louis Camogie girls for accepting our girls onto their squad! Lastly, we would like to thank Mystery Otter for keeping things interesteing! We can't wait for next year!
