Noel Gallagher takes aim at hurling
Published Saturday, 30 June 2012
Noel Gallagher has risked infuriating his fans in Ireland after branding hurling "just wrong".
The former Oasis star was in Dublin for a gig with his new band High Flying Birds at Croke Park this week, but insisted he was unimpressed with the traditional stick-based game.
He tells The Sun newspaper: "Hurling is just gang war with sticks.
"Gaelic football is a great game and quite exciting - but hurling? F*** that. Any sport where you have to wear a helmet is just wrong."
