  • Hello!  I belong to the Hurling Club in Hurlingham, Buenos Aires, Argentina.  It was founded in 1922 by irish descendants, and many of our ancestors came from Ballymore, Co Westmeath. They played hurling at first, and because of the WWs and the difficulty to import hurleys, they changed to Hockey and Rugby.  But in the last 10/12 years there's been a "revival" of gaélic sports.  Our Hurling Team took part in the Cup, played during The Gathering, in 2013 in Galway, and on the three last Gaélic Football World Games (Abu Dhabi, Dublin, Waterford). It would be interest to eventually have a "meeting" of both, Ballymore GAA Club from Ireland and Hurling Club from Argentina.
