If you are planning to play hurling in vancouver in 2010 and are travelling from Ireland, the club would appreciate if people would bring their own helmets. Hockey helmets are readily available in sports stores , but these have been found to be quite uncomfortable and heavy in the hot summers.

The Hurling Committee
