# 601 Aer Lingus Hurling Festival legacy to last a long time

aer lingus facebookIn the podcast, GaelicSportsCast looks back on September’s memorable Aer Lingus Hurling Tournament in Galway, Ireland with an in-depth look at a hurling event that will live long in the memory.

Sixteen teams from across the world descended on the county of the tribes at the behest of Aer Lingus as part of their ‘Gathering’ initiative to come and play the national sport in the ‘motherland’. The event was a glorious triumph for Aer Lingus, Galway, the GAA, and the sport of hurling.

The festival will go down as one of the best run GAA tournaments ever attempted and players are still talking about it three weeks after the event. In the extended podcast, we hear from each team on what the Aer Lingus International Hurling Festival meant to them. Irish players and officials based in Europe, America, Canada and Australia, speak candidly about the experience as do non-Irish players and officials from hurling beginners in Argentina and Germany, and the growing wealth of American players.
