Back in 2005 I met up with an Irish cudgeller who was taught to wield a blackthorn stick in
the Irish fashion by his father.
His wife & newborn baby were in Yorkhill hospital, the reason for him being in Glasgow, so we met outside
casualty, where he suggested we get the sticks out & train in the car park!!!
I didn't think this was a good idea
and suggested a nearby park, where he took me through some footwork, reminicent of Irish dance steps and techniques and
drills of the Irish Bata.
