The ball
Around the Academy:

DOwn's Mickey Linden gets a grip of the ball

A hurling ball is also known as a sliotar or, occasionally, a puck.

It must be between 23cm and 25cm in circumference and weigh between 110 and 120 grams.

For football the ball should weigh between 450g and 485g with a minimum circumference of 68cm and a maximum of 70cm.

The stick used in hurling is known as a hurley - but was on the go long before Liz.

The bottom is known as the bas and can't be wider than 13cm at its widest point.
