The game of hurling in Terryglass has a long history. Michael Parkinson remembered a story about local lads taking the steam boat up to Portumna for a game in the 1880s, and he recalled how local players would make their own hurleys. His father had founded the first local club. Mikey himself never played hurling, but recalled his schooldays, when he would happily pitch buttons in pitch-and-toss games.
