Hurling at the Cardiff Arms Park

Published: 4 August 1913

Three thousand people gathered at the Cardiff Arms Park in Wales today to watch a hurling match. The venue, better known as the home of Welsh rugby, was taken over by the Gaels of Wales who gathered to see a team from Cardiff take on a selection representing Merthyr. Although leading at half time the men from Cardiff fell away badly in the second half, and were beaten by fifteen points to twelve. The match was played to raise funds for Mr W. Ludwig, the former chief baritone of the Carl Rosa Opera Company.
