Irish hurling is headed for the University of Notre Dame.

The Gaelic Athletic Association and the Gaelic Players Association, with the support of Aer Lingus, will stage the Super Hurling 11s "The Celtic Champions Classic" at 3:30 p.m. EDT, on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Arlotta Stadium (the Irish lacrosse facility) on the Notre Dame campus.

Admission is free. The hurling event will be played just a few hours prior to the Notre Dame-USC football game that will kick off at 7:30 p.m. EDT at Notre Dame Stadium.

"We're honored to host the game and the great champion Dónal Óg Cusack, who once described hurling as `our song and our verse...'" said Paul J. Browne, vice president for public affairs and communications at Notre Dame.

"The public shouldn't miss this opportunity. Come join the chorus and witness what the Celts invented played at its highest level by fiercely talented lads on a field that they should consider their home away from home."
