    A hurling fantasia through multi-cultural Ireland. A group of asylum seekers and refugees form a hurling team. HURL charts the human, heroic and hilarious journey as this team overcomes impossible barriers while contesting the Hurling Club Championships.

    "A winning performance"
    The Irish Times

    "The physical inventiveness in which Barabbas specialises has found an
    ideal subject"

    The Guardian

    "Fast, furious and charged with energy, this is a hurling game like you never
    saw it."

    The Sunday Tribune
