Liverpool's Owner Was Enthralled By Hurling In Fenway Park

27,000 people had tickets for the Fenway Classic Super 11s hurling in Boston last month, and it seemed like the Irish sport was extremely well received by the Bostonians. TG4's excellent documentary covering it seemed to confirm this, but it wasn't until their interviews with Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy, and Red Sox and Liverpool owner John W. Henry that we really saw how Boston embraced hurling.

Both men admitted to knowing nothing about hurling before the game was played in Fenway Park, and both were highly impressed with what they saw.

It's the first time I've seen it to be honest, and it's wild... wild.

But is this just a once-off project, or will be seeing more GAA games played in front of American audiences? Henry gives a hint that there could be a lot more.

Make sure to watch the full recap of the Fenway Classic on TG4 player.
