I've watched hurling a handful of times but didn't know much about the sport. Owen changed all that, and made it a lot of fun for me, my wife, and daughter. Kilkenny are the kings of hurling and we got to walk into the park where they made that claim. Very cool just for that. Then we got to learn the basics and even take some shots on net. No athletic skill required I promise. We had a great time and have to say its a must while you're in town.

Fortunately not physically demanding whatsoever, my first experience with hurling was a very enjoyable one. Eoughen's (Owen's) enthusiasm and passion for the sport of hurling made the experience infinitely better and more interesting. I hope to someday watch Kilkenny win the Liam McCarthy cup from a major broadcasting network back in the states!

Went with my niece, her grandma and me. Owen was awesome and clearly loved the game plus we met the legend himself, Henry Shefflin. Great information on the history and then we actually get to try out some skills. Awesome!

The whole family had a great time learning all about hurling from Owen today. He was patient and kind to us hurling complete newbies from the US. We got a true appreciation for the passion and dedication to the sport (or really way of life). We had a truly memorable experience which we will talk about for years. Highly recommended for everyone. Thanks, Owen. Truly outstanding.
