Share this article


UNESCO has recognised Hurling and Camogie on their list of protected cultural activities around the world.

Hurling and Camogie are among the worlds oldest and fastest field sports in the world.

The Irish games were chosen after a lengthy process.

UNESCO has said that cultural heritage does not end at monuments and collections of objects. It also includes traditions or living expressions, inherited from ancestors and passed on.

Hurling is an example of intangible cultural heritage, said UNESCO. Camogie, considered by UNESCO "a form of hurling played by women", is also protected in the new status.

By adding hurling to the list, the Government commits to keeping the game alive, ensuring respect for it and raising awareness about its importance.
