My name is James Kavanagh and I created Hurling Tours Ireland in 2018 because of my love of our native sport, hurling. Being from Kilkenny, (the real home of hurling) all I knew since I was 5 years old was hurling and playing the sport every day. I admit nothing compares to the thrill and excitement of my playing days, but, I get a wonderful feeling from teaching both the young and the old about Hurling. Having worked in Kilkenny Castle for many years, I was asked several times a day by visitors to this beautiful city about hurling. Visitors would ask me what sport everyone around the city is playing. And so, the idea for Hurling Tours Ireland was created- to spread the wonderful message of hurling to all!
