Indy Hurling Blitz

The first annual Indy Hurling Blitz concluded with some outstanding play on all sides. Over 100 hurlers came out to Habig fields to challenge themselves and each other in the 9-on-9 tournament.

North Central topped both Cathedral teams to take the Junior trophy. All three teams played with great passion and the more experienced Panthers edged out the Fighting Irish of Cathedral.

In the Senior's bracket, Indy Hurling divided itself into 3 teams and invited teams from Bloomington and West Lafayette to join them. In the 3rd place match, Iglesia's Hombres led by Brian Church and Kyle Griffith outlasted the Quarrymen from Bloomington. The final matched the Indy Hurlers led by Mike Monaghan and Drew Calver against the CPs led by David Littlejohn and Jason Crace. In the end the Indy Hurlers pulled off the win thanks to a spectacular goal from Matt Glasheen.

A huge thanks goes out to the tournament organizers and the dozens of people who volunteered their time to referee, serve as side/end judges, or just chased the balls as the flew over the goal. Special thanks also goes out to Westfield Youth Soccer for their hospitality in letting us again use their fields. We hope the relationship continues in the future.

A contingent of IndyHurling is traveling to Akron to participate in their annual Al O'Leary Invitational. Akron has been outstanding for us in the past and we expect no different as we take part in this 7-on-7 tournament. Good luck guys!

This concludes our season for the year. The only scheduled events until the spring currently are the winter social/awards dinner and the annual general meeting. Both events are yet to be finalized but look for them to be in December and January respectively. Everyone is still free to email out a notice that they want to puck around, whenever the hurling itch gets too persistent.

Indy Hurling travels to Akron

Thanks to Jason for writing it up! And thanks to Akron for hosting!

We were the honored guests at the Akron Hibernians club on Saturday night. AQ few Akron players came out to greet us. We had good pints and free pizza. It was a very nice club and the host Paddy Taylor, was a great guy.

The match was awesome. We ended up losing 2-4 to 2-8, but we had a great showing. Kyle Griffiths played exceptional for a newbie, especially on defense. And our help from Bloomington , Robbie and Brianna played their asses off, running circles around their marks. Akron had some youth and some real speed up front, but both of their goals were cheap deflections made after great aggressive saves out of the box by me. Brian Mathes, Matt Davis and Eric Raderstorf picked it up in the second half and played very aggressive scoring some hard fought goals and points. Richard Connolly played strong all day and proved he could hit the long point hitting two just inside the half line in the second half.

We got a ton of compliments from the Akron players and fans. That was the toughest match they had been given at home all year. Although we did not win the Al O’Leary trophy, we took home some good consolations. According to an 8” X 10” photograph hanging in the Hibernian’s club room, the last Al O’Leary invitational ended up in an Akron manslaughter of Milwaukee , 43 to 17. So our 14 to 10 defeat was the best showing in tournament history. Something that the Indy Hurling Club should be proud of. They can’t wait to come to Indy next year and may just invite us back for another shot at the trophy.

Training with a champion

On October 14, Colm Egan from the NACB came down from Chicago to give us some training. Colm was on the Tipperary All-Ireland Championship team from 1989 and is currently giving clinics on training for hurling.

Colm lead us on some warm up drills then on some possession drills. Indy Hurling came out in force with over 30 showing up for practice.

A couple of the major points that Colm made was even though we don't have the same skill level as the Seniors playing in the All-Irelands, we do the same drills as they do. Of course they do them a bit faster and more accurately, but they are the exact same drills. The other major point he made was getting as many touches as possible in a practice, even during the warm-up drills get a lot of touches in. The more touches you have the better you're going to get.

Colm promised to stop by again in the Spring. We REALLY appreciate him taking the time out of his schedule to drive down and we look forward to continuing to work with him.

Kicking back, Irish Style

Indianapolis Star profiled the club as part of the Irish Festival a few weeks back... here's an excerpt...

Kicking Back, Irish Style
"Irish culture is based on song, dance and enjoyment. That's why we invented beer and whiskey," Conlon said with a smile.

Conlon, who moved here from Ireland 12 years ago, stood in a booth and shared his love of a sport developed as a way to train young men how to fight: hurling.

At North Central High School, a hurling club has been formed. There, Max Haberstadt and Alex Chesterfield, both 17, were intrigued by an invitation to play hurling, they said.

It's a great sport where you can go out there and make some contact, they said.

And how did they get invited?

"Someone said one day, 'Do you want to hurl?' " Haberstadt said.

Quigley featured in Irish Times

Our own hurley-maker-extraordinaire Steve Quigley was featured in the Irish Times, Ireland's national daily newspaper. Columnist Tom Humphries caught up with Quigs while he was travelling about Ireland learning more about hurley-making and wrote up a nice piece of Quigs and IndyHurling.

Best line of the article... "And by the way. If you want the coolest GAA accessory money can buy this summer click onto and order one of the T-shirts. Indianapolis Hurling Club on the front and the legend We Hurl, Then We Drink in Celtic lettering on the back. All proceeds to the club."

Unfortunately you can't read the article online without a subscription, but here's a copy of it.

World's Fastest Field Game A Success At Habig Fields

A large turnout of supporters, family & friends were treated to a feast of hurling at Habig Fields on Saturday, Aug 18th. First up were the U-18's of Indy and Chicago. The early exchanges saw the boys from Chicago utilize a little more craft & guile in front of goals. At half-time, Chicago led by 10 points. After the break, a re-energised and re-focused Indy team began to gain a foothold in the game. As time wore on, Indy clawed their way back to within 3 points, but unfortunately before the come-back could be completed the final whistle blew, and Chicago took the victory. It was a good, sporting game between two teams who have developed a friendly rivalry over the last number of months, and while victory eluded the Indy boys this time, they can be very proud of their display, particularly in that second-half.

The crowd was well & truly warmed up following the exciting finish to the U-18 game, and it was now the turn of the Indy adult team to take the field against the travelling team from St Louis. Indy got off to a fast start with 2 quick goals and settled into the game well. However, St Louis, the 2005 National champions, finished the half strongly and went in at the break only 4 points down. The second-half saw Indy tighten their grip on the game and they pushed on to the finish, winning eventually on a score-line of 3-13 to 1-8.

All the Indy Hurling Club members, both young & not so young, can be justifiably proud of their contribution to the weekend's success. Well done to everyone from referees, umpires, sideline judges, pitch-markers, pizza-sellers, photographers, goal-movers, bleacher-movers, and, of course, the players.

Special thanks to both the Chicago & St Louis teams & management who made the journey to Indy for these games. Indy Hurling appreciates the time and effort taken by both teams to travel and play in these matches. Both games were played in good spirit, and provided great entertainment for the large crowd in attendance.

A particular word of gratitude goes to the Westfield Youth Soccer Association. Their excellent pitches and facilities made the weekend possible, and contributed in no small way to the success of the weekend.

Finally, sincere thanks to everyone who came to watch the world's fastest field game - we hope you enjoyed it, that the experience sparked an interest in the game and that we will see you back again in the near future, both for further games and at our booth at the Indy Irishfest. Come up and talk hurling with us - we can do that all day…!!

Indy Hurling wins Dublin IrishFest Tournament

Indy Hurling are Champions of the Dublin Irishfest Tournament 2007 are some great displays over this past weekend. Indy took on several teams from the mid-west and emerged victorious with the trophy and the title tucked safely under their arm. Indy began their winning ways on Saturday by defeating old rivals Purdue in a hard-fought game, where Kyle LaPrees and others scored a couple of vital goals to ensure victory. Peter Mackey and Neal Mulrooney marshaled the defense superbly throughout the game and limited the opportunities for Purdue to stage any form of comeback.

As Indy traveled in force to Dublin, Ohio, a second team - the All-Stars - was entered in the tournament. The All-Stars took to the field against Akron's Celtic Guards, trying to emulate their club-mates' victory over Purdue. After a great first half, the highlight of which was a fantastic goal by Tim Fick, the All-Stars were sucker punched with a couple of goals right at the final whistle (a whistle that may have come a little early..!!). It was tough loss for the All-Stars, especially as so many like Brian Mathes, Matt Glasheen and Nate Risteen had played so well.

So to Sunday and the Shield Final pitted Indy All-Stars against Purdue. Despite dreadful weather, again, Indy started brightly and found themselves with a good lead at half-time following good scores from Tim Fick, Richard Connolly and Nate Risteen. However, Purdue came back strongly in the second half and really tested the All-Stars. However after a brief delay for lightning, the All-Star players really stepped up to the challenge and defended stoutly. In mid-field, Richard Connolly raised his game and made several relieving clearances and chipped in a couple of scores as well. At the final whistle, the All-Stars had held on for a well-deserved victory and third place in the tournament.

The championship final saw Indy take on Akron in what promised to be a very competitive game. The game began fairly evenly with some well-taken scores by both sides, however, Indy managed to push into a 6 points lead at half-time. Indy expected a strong challenge from Akron in the second half, but they never gave Akron the chance to get going in that second period as they drove hard for the finish line with a barrage of scores. Their were some great passages of inter-play resulting in excellent scores from Brian Church, Ian Heraty and Mike Monaghan. When Akron did get into the Indy defensive third, they found Stephen Quigley, Jim Kelly and David Littlejohn in no mood to permit scores, and Bob Finley in good form in the Indy goals. At the end, Indy were very worthy winners and claimed the inaugural title of Dublin Irishfest Tournament Champions.

Congratulations to everyone from both teams who represented Indy Hurling so well in the tournament games. All should be very proud of the manner, the standard and the quality of their play over the tournament weekend.

Special thanks goes to the Dublin Irishfest Committee and the Akron Celtic Guards for putting on a spectacular weekend.

Indy falls to St Louis

Indianapolis Hurling Club travelled to St Louis on Saturday morning to take on our midwest rival St Louis. Indy Hurling started the game strongly against a very strong St louis side. Brian Church and Rudy Nerhling were dynamic down the centre for Indianapolis. Tim Fick and Bob Finley played their heart out up front and Jason Grace was very good between the sticks. St Louis were perhaps at little too strong on the day. The trip was a worthwhile exercise in preparing a team for the national games which are nearly upon. Thank you to everyone who travelled and those wives and girlfriends who supported us on the day.

Ciaran meets with GAA President

Ciaran travelled back to Ireland for a few days and had the opportunity to meet with GAA President Nicky Brennan. While there he presented Nicky with an Indy Hurling jersey.

Nicky was made aware of the achievements of Indy Hurling club, our history, progress to date and our plans for the future.

Upon being presented with the Indy Hurling jersey, Nicky said he was delighted to receive it, and that it would, no doubt, be making some guest appearances at upcoming practices with Nicky's native club team, Conahy Shamrocks.

An t-Uachtarain Cumann Luthchleas Gael, complimented Indy Hurling on the progress made to date. He urged all club members to continue their efforts to grow the game in Indianapolis and to utilize all the resources available through the GAA in attempting to achieve that goal. Finally, Nicky wished the club well in its future endeavours.

Juniors represent Indy Hurling at CYC

The North Central/Indy U18 Hurling Club competed in Chicago this past weekend at the Continental Youth Championships at Gaelic Park. The team lost both of their matches, but all of the players left the pitch with smiles on their face knowing that they had played two exciting matches before hundreds of spectators and current GAA President Nickey Brennan and past GAA President Sean Kelly. Afterwards, the boys were congratulated by the current President for their strong play and then everyone posed for photos. Each player knows how far they have come in the past year, and what they need to do to bring the cup home to Indianapolis next year.

Pat Flynns vs Connors, Game VI

Another great game yesterday at Richardt Park. With all the big guns missing, Flynns played like dogs from hell, being first to the ball and taking scores from all angles, it looked liked it was one-way traffic through the first 15 mins leading 8 points to 3. Then a good goal from Richard and points from Church and Monaghan clawed Connors back to lead at half time 14 points to 10. The second half started the same as the first with a great point from play by "The Flying Tobin" from 45 yards out, which spared his time on. A goal from Drew and points from Rudy and Bubbles. Flynns led by a 2 points with 8 mins gone. Kyle LaPres clmbed high above everybody to catch the ball from a long puck out from Jay-Jay, turned his man and struck it over the bar. Matt Davis not to be out done clipped it over from a good distance to put Flynns back ahead. Missed 65's and botched frees left both teams scrambling for breaking balls in the mid field. Church played a 30 yard pass / shot on target which Flynns ever present keeper caught and cleared it out only to see it come rifling back at him from LaPres to put Connors ahead. Flynns missed some easy chances which cost them the game at the end with a score of Flynns 23 - Connors 25.

Thanks again to all the supporters for coming out its great to see the crowd growing each week.

Game 5 Rematch

Game #5 of the Indy Hurling league saw the most competitive game of the series to date with Connors just edging Flynn's in the last 5 minutes on a score-line of 25 pts to 20pts. Both teams showed great effort, execution and energy. As has become the norm in recent games, Flynn's raced into a strong first half lead with some spirited play and excellent scores from Neal Mulrooney, Drew Calvert and Dave Maish. Flynn's dominated on the scoreboard right to the half-time whistle, while Connors just couldn't convert the chances they were creating. The second half saw a big improvement from Connors. They really upped the tempo and finally began to translate some of those opportunities into scores on the board. Great inter-play between Mike Monaghan, Richard Connolly, Colin Conlon and Kyle Laprees began to pay dividends as Connors clawed their way back into the game. Flynn's weren't about to go under easily though and they scored another goal which took a little of the wind from Connors sails. From there, the game continued to ebb and flow to the very end with only a point or two separating the teams. That was until Brian Church secured his place in Connors folklore with a well-taken goal a couple of minutes from the final whistle. Once again, Rudy Nehrling and Jason Crace were on top form for the Flynn's defense, ably assisted by Jonathan tobin and Eric Radersdorf. For Connors, Brian Church had an excellent game as did Jim Kelly, Brian Mathes and Matt Glasheen who all repelled many of the Flynn's attacks. Thanks to our family & friends, and some new faces in the crowd, including ball-girl extraordinaire Ms Patsy Greene from Ireland, for coming to show your support for the game of hurling,- we appreciate it as always!

Connors and Flynns fight to a draw!

A tight, exciting finish saw Connors and Flynn's share the spoils at Richardt Park, Sunday 17 June 2007, on a score-line of 3-6 to 4-3. There were some excellent scores produced by both sides exemplifying all that progress being made by both teams as they strive to be crowned Indy Hurling league champions for 2007. Once again, Pat Flynn's started the brighter and established an early lead with an opportunist goal by Drew Calvert. However, Connors quickly responded and brought themselves back into the game with some well-taken points from distance by Brian Church (he certainly brought his "A" game today) and a great passage of team interplay involving Kyle LaPrees, which was finished to the back of the net by Richard Connolly past Jason Crace in the Flynn's goal - who earlier had produced a stunning save to deny the same player. The second half saw Connors up their tempo, and stretch into a lead of 6 points. Flynn's dug in and clawed 3 points back when Rudy Nehrling scored a goal from distance, and with the game drawing to a close, they scrambled a goal to bring the teams level. Both sides had chances to win the game thereafter, but good defensive work from Eric Radersdorf for Flynn's and Matt Glasheen for Connors saw both teams remain level at the final whistle. So, in an effort to break the deadlock in Game #5, a rematch is set for next Sunday June 23rd. We hope all those family & friends that came to watch enjoyed the game and the refreshments afterwards.

Game 4 - Flynns Dominates

Pat Flynn's tasted victory for the first time last week - and they've decided that they like it!! They had a convincing win with a scoreline of 7- 6 to 4-8 against Connors, in Game #4 of the Indy Hurling league at Richardt Park, Sunday June 10, 2007. Pat Flynn's were in the driving seat from early on and piled on the pressure with a veritable feast of scoring in the first half. Excellent play from Stephen Quigley, Ian Heraty and Drew Calvert had Connors under serious pressure all the way to the final whistle. For Flynn's the aforementioned players did very well as did Rudy Nehrling who swept up a lot of dangerous situations in the Flynn's defense. For Connors it was a disappointing performance, but they will take heart from the fact that they created numerous opportunities and continued to play hard to the end. So, as the teams head toward Game #5, it's all square in the Indy Hurling league - we wouldn't want it any other way!! As always, the club is grateful to those family and friends who came to watch the game - we hope you enjoyed it!

Pat Flynn's roars back

Oh yes...!!! Pat Flynn's are back with a bang, as they beat Connors on a score-line of 4-7 to 3-4 in Game 3 of the Indy Hurling league at Richardt Park Sunday, 03 June 2007. Another free-flowing encounter saw Pat Flynn's control the tempo for much of the game. They began brightly with some well-taken points from distance, and their early efforts were rewarded with a goal just before halftime. Connors, themselves, responded with a rather lucky goal to keep things pretty even on the stroke of halftime. However, with sterling performances from Jason Crace, in goals for Flynn's, and some excellent stickwork from Drew Calvert up front, Pat Flynn's were not to be denied their victory today. Connors tried hard throughout and kept pressing right to the final whistle but, despite making several chances, it was not enough to snatch victory. The win for Pat Flynn's keeps the league nicely poised at 2-1 to Connors, with 4 games remaining. Once again, Indy Hurling would like to acknowledge all those who came out to support family & friends - your support is much appreciated.

Connors v Pat Flynns, Part Deux

The clash of the ash echoed around Richardt Park, Sunday 20 May 07, as Connors took on Pat Flynn's in round 2 of the Indy Hurling league. This was a full-blooded affair with both sides tackling hard and challenges flying in from the start. This intensity was maintained throughout the game and was coupled with some excellent score-taking by players from both sides. Connors gained the upper hand in the first-half with some good goals scored by their offence. However, Pat Flynn's emerged even more determined in the second-half, and soon had the Connors defence on the back foot, with prolonged periods of pressure. This pressure paid dividends as Pat Flynn's scored a couple of good goals courtesy of Rudy Nehrling and Neal Mulrooney. As the game moved to its conclusion Connors were awarded a free close to goal, and Jon Barton stepped up to score a crucial goal for Connors. This helped to put a little breathing room between the teams and Connors emerged victorious on a score-line of 7-7 to 5-6. Overall, this was a tough, uncompromising encounter with the skills of the game being executed at a higher intensity level than previous games, which augers well for future participation in upcoming tournaments. Thanks again to everyone who played and to those who came out to support their family and friends.

On the DL

Well folks, it looks like thanks to an unfortunate meeting with Eric under the goal a week ago I'm going to be on the DL for a bit.

Sunday before last (April 29 for those keeping track) I collided with Eric near the end of practice and hurt my finger. I went to the doctor today and found out the diagnosis is mallet finger (torn tendon in my finger) which means I'll be out for 6-8 weeks.

Now... here's were you come in... Since I won't be there for practices and probably not for games I'm going to need your help getting the correct info on club happenings.

I'll still be here... just can't play...

Connor's beats Pat Flynn's in League Opener

Connor's beats Pat Flynn's in League opener

And so rivalries have been renewed. Once again, Pat Flynn's took on Connor's in the opening game of the 2007 Indy Hurling League at Richardt Park. A bright, sunny Sunday morning saw both teams play a lively, spirited encounter. The pace of the play moved the ball from end to end and there were some excellent passages of play. The level of commitment and effort by both sides could not be faulted and all the skills of the game were put on show, with some tremendous blocks, inter-play and shots on goal by players from both sides. The game ended, 6-3 to 3-3, with victory for Connor's, but Pat Flynn's will be out to avenge that defeat in the next game, scheduled for 20 May 07. Thanks to all members that played on the day. Special thanks to those family and friends who came out to show their support for the players as they play the world's fastest (and greatest) field game! -- Ciaran

North Central Hurling Club

The North Central Hurling Club has resumed operation. In hurling, capturing players when they're young and developing them is critical to the development of a local GAA.

Here are some videos from a recent NC practice.

Thursday, April 5, 2007

Run like hell

Banisteor told us we were going to concentrate on our fitness this year... and on his first practice he showed us.

Running wind sprints (with pushups tacked on), sprinting across the field, running out the ball on one-on-one drills... phew...

Despite frigid weather (wind chills were in the 20s) and a muddy field, we still had about 18 guys come out to practice... Great to see so many coming out on a regular basis.

Practice on Sunday was cancelled for Easter, but Banisteor is setting up an impromptu practice on Saturday at 4pm at Broad Ripple Park. If you've got nothing to do and want to hit the ball around, come on out.

Casualty of the day

In full swing

Sunday marked the official start of the 2007 season for Indy Hurling.

About 25 guys made it out to Richardt Park for the first official practice. Field conditions were atrocious and after hitting the ball around for a few minutes the decision was made to move to Lawrence Park.

After arriving at Lawrence Park, Ciaran led us through various drills for handpassing and defending. 4 new players also joined us for the first time. Ciaran led Chappy, Eric, Jason and one other (I'm sorry I never got your name!) through the basics of how to lift the ball and other beginner drills.

Finally we all came together for a scrimmage. The guys played hard and even one of the new guys scored a point. A couple of hurleys were broken, but fun was had by all.

I got some nice pictures and I'll get them posted as soon as I can.

Muddy Muddy Day

The last of our pre-season conditioning practices took place Wednesday night. As before Ciaran led us through the paces.

We started off with a simple three-man passing drill, first in the air and then on the ground. After than the same groups lined up to practice doubling. The last part of the drills was a man-on-man possession drill where one of the three would hit the ball to the other two and they would try to get possession. We ended the evening by dividing into teams and trying to maintain possession for 10 passes.

After all the rain the fields were VERY muddy, but that didn't slow anyone down.

Remember that Sunday is our first official practice at 10am at Lawrence Richardt Park. We've been averaging 13-14 people per practice so far, let's see if we can get that number up.

Monday, March 26, 2007


One of the 2007 goals for the Indianapolis Hurling Club is competing nationally in the NAGAA championships. How well we do and how far we go is up to us.

What this means is we're scheduling more teams than just Purdue this year. We planning a trip up to Chicago on April 21st for training with the Milwaukee Hurling Club and other area teams. Details aren't finalized yet, but we're also planning matches with Akron and Milwaukee.

If we want to accomplish anything it's going to take commitment. That means coming to practice everytime you can. That means making every road trip you can. That means going out at practice and giving it everything you have. That means picking up your hurley at home and practicing some simple skills.

We're not the youngest of guys I know, but if we use our heads and train hard we can put Indy Hurling on the map.

Thursday, March 22, 2007


Good lord... it's been a long time since I did anything physical... so much for a "light" conditioning...

Ciaran stepped in to conduct the training. We started off with the hand passing drills then moved onto short ground strokes. We works on short passes in the air and then a few one-on-one drills... ugh.

Finally we divided up for some a quick scrimmage.

It was great to pick up the hurley again and puck the ball around.

Our next practice is Sunday afternoon at 3pm at Broad Ripple Park and has been designated "Bring a friend day!" Now I know some of you guys don't really have any friends, so you're excused from it, but everyone else try to bring a buddy out to play. We've got lots of extra hurleys they can borrow, so don't worry about equipment.

St Patrick's Day Parade!

It was a brisk morning, but the sun was shining and the spirit of the hurlers was high as Indy Hurling participated in their 2nd straight St Patrick's Day Parade. We all met up and pucked the ball around to keep warm while we waited our turn to walk. Thanks to the bainisteoir for the use of the truck where we attached the banners.

A completely impartial observer (ok, my wife) commented that Indy Hurling was one of the highlights of the parade along with Richens/Timm dance academy (which she's an impartial observer also). "Most of the parade was just students from schools walking... at least you guys did something..." The guys pucked the ball around on the parade route while walking... by the way, next year try not to hit any more horses.

Here's some pictures...

Prepping for St. Patrick's Day

Aside from Irish Fest, no time like St Patrick's Day draws more attention to hurling and all things Irish like St. Patrick's Day.

Once again this year, Indy Hurling will be marching in the St Patrick's Day Parade. The parade is on Friday March 16th this year and starts at 11:30a. Indy Hurling is assigned to Division 2, Unit 14. We'll be assembling at Pennsylvania and Walnut at 10:30a. Bring your hurleys and dress warm. They're predicting the temps to be around the mid 40s.

After the parade there'll be a post-parade/pre-St. Patrick's day celebration at Connor's Pub in Broad Ripple, located at 633 Ferguson Street. Connor's is one of our proud sponsors, so let's all show them some love. The guys said the shindig will start at about 3p.

Also at Connor's on St. Patrick's Day Indy Hurling will have a booth to recruit new players. More info is coming on that!
