BANDY. An athletic sport common in Wales, and the most popular of all its ancient rural diversions. It consists in a contest between two rival parties, and those players win the game who first succeedin driving the ball, with bent sticks, between the goal marks of their adversaries. There is a favourite game among the Irish peasants called hurling, which resembles bandy. The Irish hurl (horl) (hurdle) is made of seasoned ash, flat in the blade, and round in the handle.
