The annual clash between Scotland and Ireland: Scotland's native game of shinty versus Ireland's native game of hurling. Shinty is among the fastest, most physically demanding and skilful sports in the world, with the ball exceeding 100mph. Scottish emigrants to Canada played shinty on ice in winter, giving rise to the game of ice hockey.
The Camanachd Association is the governing body for shinty across the world. Based in Inverness, Scotland the Association is focussed on working with member clubs to develop a game that is enjoyed by an increasing number of participants, of all ages and abilities both on the field of play, and off.
