While a lot of this is interesting, it is what most children in Ireland learn in primary school. There are some errors which would make me wonder how much of it is accurate.

Interesting but you would need to double check the references. The piece that mentioned hurling in particular caused hilarity when I read it out.

Autumn What were the errors? I'm curious.

It's been a while, so I can't remember exactly what errors there were but what does stand out is that they talked about hurling and scoring into hoops.
