Éire Óg Ottawa Hurling Club was founded in 2012 with the goal of bringing the great game of hurling to Canada’s National Capital Region – Ottawa.  The club started as a co-ed senior team that played against Montreal, and later grew to compete with teams in Halifax, Toronto, Quebec City, Syracuse, and Rochester in various tournaments across Eastern Canada and the Northeastern USA.
