The shillelagh is a traditional walking stick that is inextricably linked to the folklore of Ireland. Many folk tales
involve the shillelagh, which doubles as a weapon, and was once used much in the same fashion as dueling pistols, to settle
disputes in the olden days. But now it's mostly a symbol of Ireland's past. It's the perfect symbol for the tough battle
you'll see on the ice when you get tickets.
