Fenway Park has been transformed as 28,000 fans pack in for Hurling Classic

The iconic Boston venue has been taken over by the Irish.

A CROWD OF over 28,000 people are expected at Boston’s iconic Fenway Park this evening for the first hurling match to be staged at the ground since 1954.

Dublin and Galway are contesting the inaugural AIG Fenway Hurling Classic in Boston.

Last night, Boston College and Notre Dame squared off at the home of the Red Sox but the Irish have taken over today for what promises to be a memorable occasion.

In addition to the game, the festivities will include a lively Irish festival complete with Irish food, music, and dancing. The highlight of the off-field entertainment includes a performance by the Dropkick Murphys.
