Hurling

  • What Is Hurling
  • Can I play?
  • Who do you play?
Hurling is an Irish game resembling field hockey, played with a shorter stick with a broader oval blade. It is the national game of Ireland and may date back to the 2nd millennium BC. Hurling is mentioned in Irish mythology and the legendary Cú Chulainn played early versions of hurling. Since then Hurling has evolved and is now a field sport played on a rectangular field slightly larger than an NFL or soccer field. Two teams play against each other on the field and each contain 15 players on the field, hence a total of 30 players are on the field at a time. A team can make up to 5 regular substitutes during a game (there are technicalities for exceptions to this rule). In North America the teams play with 13. The aim of the game is to outscore the other team by hitting the sliotar (small leather ball) into the opposing teams goal for 3 points or between the vertical upright posts above the goal for 1 point. The game consists of 2 35 minute halves.
Yes! We welcome all players at all levels to join the Wolves. Please join us at any of our training sessions or matches. To find out more please contact any member of the officers. No prior experience is required. We find that many of our members have prior experience of playing LaCrosse and/or hockey either field or ice. However that is not a prerequisite and we welcome members at all levels and will provide training and coaching.
We compete in the North East competition of the country which is run by the Boston GAA. We play against several different teams from Massachussetts, Rhode Island, Maine and Conneticut. We also play in friendly matches amongst our many players on a weekly basis throughout the summer months, which is useful for new members to develop their skills, for older members who are over the hill to have some fun on the field, and for every thing in between. So come on down and join us or come along and watch this ancient Irish Sport in action right here in Bow, New Hampshire.

Barley House Wolves

About Barley House Wolves

The Barley House Wolves are N.H.’s first American-born hurling club. The Wolves were originally formed in 2006 by combat veterans from the New Hampshire Army National Guard as a way to stay connected as they adjusted to life post combat.

Today, the Barley House Wolves are represented by N.H. veterans & active service members from all branches of the military, along with members of local law enforcement, fire rescue service, and civilians who have come to love the Irish sport.

The club competes at the Jr. C & Jr. B levels, and are the winners of the 2012 Jr. C NACB Finals.
