hurling

 

Here in Ireland, Irish culture and Irish identity is very much linked to the GAA and its sports. In fact, the movement for Irish independence has its roots there. Some typical Irish sport are Hurling and Gaelic Football (I keep getting the urge to shout 'Handball!').

fierljeppen

 

Back in Holland, the people with the most outspoken cultural identity and their own sports are the Frisians. Speed skating, while popular in the whole of Holland, has its most fanatical followers there. They also have some unique sports of their own, like fierljeppen or kaatsen.

 

So what kind of sport do they have where you live?
