Men's Gaelic Football

Gaelic football has been played for hundreds of years. Players advance the football, a spherical leather ball, up the field with a combination of carrying, bouncing, kicking, hand-passing, and soloing – mixing skills of soccer, basketball, volleyball and rugby.

Ladies Gaelic Football

Ladies Gaelic football is almost identical to the men’s version, with a few rule changes. It is fast paced, physical and high scoring and is growing in popularity with hundreds of clubs throughout the world.
