Kilkenny City

Hurling

Kilkenny GAA Grounds. The 1366 Statutes of Kilkenny expressly forbade the ancient Irish game of hurling. No matter: today, Kilkenny is considered one of the great hurling counties. Like its neighbor and archenemy, Wexford, Kilkenny has a long history of success in hurling, and as the annual All-Ireland Hurling Championships draws to its final stages during July and August, interest in the county's team runs to fever pitch. Catch the home team at matches held at Kilkenny GAA Grounds. Nowlan Park, Kilkenny City, Co. Kilkenny. 056/776–5122. www.kilkennygaa.ie.
