Learning this one word may have inspired thousands of people who never knew that hurling even existed to start watching it... Mind blown.

Yes--and this lesson is doing wonders for getting it un-mixed-up with curling in my head. :D

It couldn't be confused with curling once it is spectated: Seems to be cross between lacrosse and some blood sport!

I like hurling. It does mean something quite different here in the US, which isn't so good.

Very happy that this lesson is teaching the word Hurling! If you don't know what Hurling is, then you'd be lost coming to Ireland XD Although, for some reason, I have a feeling most people learning Irish are actually from Ireland like myself!

From the US, myself. Played hurling before taking Irish lessons, though.
