Will and Kate try their hand at hurling on final day in Ireland

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed taking part in a few traditional Irish pastimes on the final day of their visit to Ireland.

Will and Kate were in Galway and they took part in a GAA training session with local club Salthill Knocknacarra.

The Duke and Duchess both tried their hand at the Gaelic football drills, but it is fair to say they showed more natural talent with the hurley in their hand.

They took part in a shooting practice routine, where they tossed the sliotar (ball) into the air and tried to hit it between the posts with the hurley.

Both Will and Kate were able to strike the ball through the posts with a little bit of practice.

Earlier in the day, the royal couple had visited Tribeton, a fashionable restaurant in the city centre.

They then stopped off at Tig Coili pub where they met with local people who volunteer their time to promote the city of Galway.

The Duke and Duchess were lucky enough to sit in on a jam session of traditional Irish music from a group of local performers.

Galway, the European City of Culture, was a suitable place for William and Kate to conclude their stay in Ireland.

They have sampled all sorts of traditional customs during their stay and seen some of the wonderful attractions that Ireland has to offer.

Upon their arrival in Dublin, the couple met with President Higgins and his wife, before sampling a pint of Guinness at the wold-famous Storehouse on James Street.

Their second day saw them visit Co Meath and help with some local projects before taking an outdoor stroll and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
