Accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, The Queen received a gift from the President of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), Christy Cooney. The GAA oversees the national sport of Ireland: Hurling, which dates back over 3,000 years. Hurling combines skills from baseball, lacrosse and field hockey into one action packed sport. The Queen graciously accepted hallmarks of Gaelic sport: a stick called a hurley and a ball called a sliotar.
