Cork losing the Hurling final!!

After a thrilling match watched for the first half in Rearden Bar and the second half in Washington Inn, Cork supporters had to cry for their defeat against Clare. After the final whistle all the Cork people were clapping their hands for respect in honour of the rival. I didn t know much of the game and in fact in the last post I was wrong publishing a video of gaelic football and not hurling…so today was the hurling final!! Players can play with rackets and hands, not feet!

Pub were crowded again this week, thousands glasses of beers sold in every pub and people shouting and singing! It has been really an amazing afternoon with people  who support Cork since they were children and we erasmus people that for the first time saw a match of hurling 😀
