'Ireland's Dirty Secret' - Canadians React To Watching Hurling For The First Time

'Ireland's Dirty Secret' - Canadians React To Watching Hurling For The First Time

Foreigners reacting to Irish stuff is the bread and butter of the Irish media at this stage.

Future historians may well remember 2014 as the year of the British Twitter Reaction. We, of course, bear some responsibility for this phenomenon. We published the first ever British twitter reaction back on June 7th 2014, following the extremely one-sided Kilkenny-Offaly Leinster championship match. It was a post idea that we thought might interest people.

This proved to be correct.

It proved to be correct on a massive scale. The traffic on the post was simply extraordinary. Two years on, it remains the most popular post in the history of the site.

This week, we have Canadians watching some hurling. The results are predictably predictable.
