The Willamette Hurling Club (WHC) is a collection of fearless (and rather strapping) men & women in Portland, OR. Built upon courage, renowned for tenacity, and maintained with valor, the WHC brings Northwest character to the ancient Irish field game of hurling.

Also, we're just a fun group of people that like to run around with sticks and drink beer afterwards.
