King, Seamus J. (1998). The Clash of the Ash in Foreign Fields: Hurling Abroad. p.129. ISBN 978-0-9533513-0-5. In speech, a score consisting of at least one goal and one point is read as simply the two numbers, so Tipperary's 2–13 is read "two thirteen"; the words "goals" and "points" invariably omitted. Goals are never "converted" into points; it is incorrect to describe a score of 2–13 as "nineteen". 2–0 would be referred to as "two goals", never "two zero". Likewise, 0–10 would be referred to as "ten points", never "zero ten". 0–0 is said "no score". So the Clare/Tipperary match score would be read as "Clare twenty points, Tipperary two thirteen".

They have two official teams called The Wild Geese and The Barley House Wolves (also known as The New Hampshire Wolves Hurling Club), with the latter having been spontaneously established in 2006 when the troop took in a game while on a stopover at Shannon airport. When I was testing in Ballyboden St. Enda's I tested about 30 people and there was a high percentage of people that were cross-dominant. Compared to hurling, camogie uses a size 4 sliotar, which is slightly smaller than size 5 sliotar used in hurling. In addition, a camogie player can’t deliberately shoulder their opponent.
What we don't know is have those players reached the top because they were cross-dominant, or did they become cross-dominant because they were playing hurling? That would be a really, really interesting study.”
