Hockey for Women

The origin of hockey appears uncertain. It is possible that the game derives from "hurley" which we know was being played in Ireland as far back as 1272 B.C. On the other hand it seems equally likely that the stick game of the ancient Persians was subsequently acquired by the Greeks who in turn handed it on to the Romans and that they brought the game to our islands with their invasion.
