  • Hurling (Cornish: Hurlian) is an outdoor team game played only in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is played with a small silver ball. The sport is not to be confused with the Irish game, also called hurling; there are profound differences between the two sports. Once played widely in Cornwall, the game has similarities to other traditional football or inter parish 'mob' games played in various parts of Britain, but certain attributes make hurling 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 means "hurling is our sport" Today the sport survives only in two communities: St Columb Major, where the are played on Shrove Tuesday and the second Saturday following, between the Townsmen and the Countrymen of the parish, and St Ives, where a hurling game is played by children on Feast Monday. In addition, a version of hurling features in the beating of the bounds festivities at Bodmin roughly every five years. Although the custom attracts fewer spectators, the annual hurling matches at St Columb Major have similar status in the Cornish calendar to 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.
