The game invented by Cookerlane

If you've ever watched the TV on a visit to Ireland and wondered about Hurling, (common questions - how come there's a game as good as this and I've not watched it before / what sort of idiot goes anywhere near those swinging planks / can you see the ball? I can't... etc), you could do worse than go to the Today FM site and subscribe to Ian Dempsey's breakfast show podcast.

A few days ago, there was a good one entitled 'Gift Fox Hurling' - the ancient history of the game as explained by Fox News. Roy Keane's regular guest-spots are worth tuning in for as well. Go on - subscribe!

On a more serious Irish note, here's Brian Walker rounding up the question about nationalist / unionist vetoes in Northern Ireland's politics - again, worth reading and following the links.
