The Game: Story of Hurling

Condition & Format


DVD Release Date Ireland 23/11/18


A landmark production where legendary players, expert commentators, passionate fans, captivating archive and thrilling visuals bring hurling’s remarkable story to life. Through 1000s of years of bitter rivalries, triumphs and upsets, THE GAME reveals the unique warmth, colour and camaraderie that hurling fosters both within and across communities throughout Ireland.

From the local ‘field of dreams’ to the crucible of Croke Park, state of the art high speed cameras and film techniques – more often the hallmark of international wildlife films – were used to slow down the incredible skills of the game, so often invisible in the blizzard of action, to portray hurling as never seen before.

Exhaustive research unearthed rare gems of archive footage previously thought lost forever. Games from the 1920s and 1930s – some of the earliest moving footage of hurling – were rescued from the vaults and rescanned to pin sharp resolution allowing viewers to see this unique material in unprecedented new detail.

And the stars of the game...never before has such a cast of living legends been assembled to passionately tell their personal stories; including Henry Shefflin, Joe Canning, Lee Chin, DJ Carey, Seán Óg Ó hAilpín, Austin Gleeson, Anna Geary, Eddie Keher, Jimmy Barry Murphy, Anthony Daly, Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, Angela Downey, Ger Loughnane, Brian Cody and many more – 60 major interviews in all.


Filmed in cinema quality 4K, THE GAME is a celebration of hurling from its prehistoric origins to its tremendous growth over the last century and how today it can justifiably claim to be the fastest and most exciting field sport in the world.
