The international audience also joined 80,000 others to watch Tipperary beat Wexford in the final of Ireland's national game, hurling. A Norwegian delegate reports the game to be "…a cross between American Football and hockey with teams of 15 players, the ball beaten by clubs and the goal looking like a rugby post. It seemed more important to hit the opponents than the ball…"
