First Irish stick I've seen that I think might be legit
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

It would be interesting to know his background.
The Whiskey Bottle Arrangement looks very similar to what we would call Plum flower.

Stepping he uses expresses the same ideas and usage as shown in the hop gar clip
rule 19

I can categorically confirm there is no lineage based stick fighting system in ireland. However, the national sport hurling develops quite a lot of attributes necessary for warfare, such as speed, co-ordination, timing, spacial awareness.

What about the Doyle family style and Antrim Bata?

I categorically confirm, there is no systematized method of traditional Irish stick fighting.
Now, in the ancient Irish history there are a lot of tales of training in sword fighting, spear fighting and projectile weapons.

I will say however, some people have there own "bag of tricks" and i've spoken with bare knuckle fighters who talk a lot about street smarts and set ups. I've no doubt such men existed and had a bag of tricks for using a irish stick or club effectively.
