clash of the ash

In the sport of hurling, the sound of opponents' hurleys (long paddle-like sticks, made from ash wood) striking each other, or (by extension) the contest between two hurling teams in general. Primarily heard in Ireland. It was an intense match, and the fierce clash of the ash could be heard ringing through the pitch. Fans are gearing up for spectacular clash of the ash this Saturday afternoon.
