St Columb Hurling 2012.wmv

St Columb Major's crazy Cornish traditional silver ball rugby come fight, wrestle brawl, game between the town & country folk.
Hurling or Hurling the Silver Ball (Cornish: Hyrlîan), is an outdoor team game of Celtic origin played only in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is played with a small silver ball. The origins may be connected to the Irish game of the same name which allows the use of sticks.
Once played widely in Cornwall, the game has similarities to other traditional football or inter parish 'mob' games, but certain attributes make this version unique to Cornwall. It is considered by many to be Cornwall's national game along with Cornish wrestling. An old saying in the Cornish language goes; hyrlîan yw gen gwaré nyi which translated into English means, Hurling is our sport [1]
Although the custom attracts fewer spectators, the annual hurling matches at St. Columb Major have the same status in the Cornish calendar as the 'Obby 'Oss festival at Padstow and the Furry Dance at Helston in that all three are unique customs that have survived unchanged and have taken place annually since before records began.
