What are the Gaelic Games? 

Gaelic games provide a range of individual and team sports for male and female players of all ages and abilities. There are six different games in the family of Gaelic Games. These are Hurling, Gaelic football, Handball, Rounders, Camogie and Ladies Football.

Hurling/Camogie and Gaelic football/Ladies Football are field invasion games played between teams of  7, 9, 11 or 15 players (depending on facilities/region) while Handball is played by 2 or 4 players striking a small ball against a wall. Rounders is a field game similar to baseball.

Hurling, Gaelic Football, Handball and Rounders are governed by the Gaelic Athletic Association – the ‘GAA’. The Camogie Association and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association govern Camogie and Ladies Football respectively.
