This sounds remarkably like the sport of Hurling, which is still played
in Ireland, and I used to play in Ansteorra... Is this the same game with
a different (regional) name?

Let me know because I still have my hurly's lying around somewhere,
and it is a great game (although a little hard on the shins).
