WATCH: Harry And Meghan Were Seriously Impressed With Joe Canning’s Hurling Skills Today

James Fenton

Prince Harry and Meghan are continuing their whistle-stop tour of Dublin today and this morning, after meeting Michael D. Higgins and his canine friends, they graced the hallowed turf at Croke Park.

The GAA pulled out all the stops to greet the pair and with some of the biggest names in Gaelic Games were on hand to say hello. Harry and Meghan met with Galway hurler Joe Canning, footballers Lyndsey Davey (Dublin) and Michael Murphy (Donegal) as well as Rena Buckley of Cork.

After a brief run-through of the rules of our national games, 2017 All-Ireland winner Canning stepped up to show the Royal Couple what he does best by belting a sliotar (presumably) over the bar at GAA HQ.

Check it out below.

While Meghan appeared to urge Harry to have a go himself, the Prince politely declined.

Probably better off. He wasn’t gonna show up Canning anyway. Not many people do.
