One of the most iconic shows in the US aired a segment on hurling last night and got a great reaction from viewers.

'60 Minutes Sports' told the the story of the 'most exciting game you've probably never heard of' and the feature was a hit among viewers of the broadcast on Showtime.

President Michael D Higgins will discuss the origins of the fastest field game on the planet while Donal Óg Cusack explains the local nature of the sport.

'You play where you are born," was the Corkman's message and the voluntary nature of the sport impressed many on the other side of the Atlantic.
