You will always see boys with hurleys in their hands coming to school in the morning. It is a game which requires great skill. You use a stick called a hurley, made from ash and a hard ball, called a sliotar. You can hit the ball out of your hands or along the ground.It is allowed to lift the ball off the ground using the hurley and then hiting it is the air.Some people think it is a very dangerous game and you can get injured easiloy if you are not careful.
