It didn't take long for Dublin and Galway to get to grips with each other in the Fenway Classic - an exhibition match in the home of the Boston Red Sox with hybrid rules.

Players from both teams were involved in a mass brawl much to the delight, it seemed, to some of the Americans in the crowd. Judging by social media, the Boston locals are really enjoying their day out with plenty of Guinness being consumed.
