One of the performances of the season saw Zurich Inneoin hurling club overcome rivals Den Haag in a thrilling finale to last weekend’s 3rd round of the 2011 European Hurling Champi0nship, in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Zurich side, with a half a dozen Swiss and international players, out-gunned Den Haag – who had won the prior two tournaments – to take their first tournament win in five years. Result Final – Zurich [16] 2-10 Den Haag [14] 0-14.

In Camogie meanwhile, Paris joined hosts Zurich and championship leaders, Belgium, for this tournament, but it was the Zurich side who caused a shock when beating Paris with effectively an all Swiss team to reach the final.
However Belgium proved too strong in the final.
