Making the Most

February 14th, 2016 | Uncategorized

One of my very first blogs was about my first time playing Gaelic Football and Hurling. I haven’t had the chance to play them since I wrote that blog but I have been able to watch them regularly. Some days I get picked up for coaching at this place called the Sports Pavilion. The Sports Pavilion is about a two-minute walk from my apartment and it is a restaurant that overlooks multiple sports fields. The fields are always busy with games and practices for Hurling and Gaelic Football. I love all sports and since I am only in Ireland for a year, I’ve decided to try and experience first hand these two sports as much as I can. Whenever I get picked up at the Sports Pavilion now, I always go early to watch these teams play. They really are two very interesting and unique sports to watch. I’ve caught up on a lot of the rules and how much skill is required by the players.  Some of my players that I coach play these sports as well and I hope my schedule works out one day where I’ll be able to watch them play.
