[ # ] Hurling / Shinty Internationals in Scotland
October 12th, 2007

The annual clash between Ireland and Scotland in the hurling/shinty is on again in Scotland. There are games played at 3 levels, Senior men, Under21 men and Camogie.

Scotland are the holders of the senior men’s title having won last year in Croke Park. The games have always been very competitive with neither side totally dominating. The teams are 14 players a side, somewhat of a compromise between the 12 players on shinty team and the 15 on a hurling team. In recent years the Irish team has been made up of players from the lower tiers (i.e. christy ring and nicky rackards cups).

The Irish senior panel is:

1. Mark Brennan (Carlow)
2. Martin Comerford (Kilkenny)
3. Brian Connaughton (Westmeath)
4. David Crimmins (Meath)
5. Eoin Donnellan (Longford)
6. James Donnelly (Donegal)
7. Aidan Healy (Kerry)
8. Kevin Hinphey (Derry)
9. Michael Keaveney (Roscommon)
10. Patrick McArdle (Armagh)
11. Sean McCullagh (Derry)
12. Don Hyland (Wicklow)
13. Jonathon O Neill (Wicklow)
14. Michael O Neill (Wicklow)
15. Des Shaw (Carlow)
16. Paul Sheridan (Cavan)
17. James Skehill (Galway)

The unde 21 panel is:
1. Kevin Campbell (Donegal)
2. Cathal Carvill (Armagh)
3. Declan Coulter (Armagh)
4. Mark Craig (Derry)
5. Danny Cullen (Donegal)
6. Kieran Dineen (Kerry)
7. Rory Dunbar (Carlow)

A pity the games don’t have a higher profile. I suppose with Ireland only fielding second-tier Ring Cup players, it’s never likely to be a big part of the hurling year.

Yeah, you’d think it’s a great opportunity to promote such a skillful game. It should get a marketing along the international rules for football lines. An opportunity for the best players in both lands to represent their countries - could take the place of the finished railway cup
