What are the Gaelic Games?
Originating in Ireland, the two main gaelic games are Hurling and Gaelic Football. Camogie is the highly popular female version of Hurling and there is a growing amount of Ladies Gaelic Football being played.
In Hurling and Gaelic Football, the scoring system is the same. The target is a set of H posts like in rugby but with a net on the bottom section like in soccer. Players on two teams of fifteen must put the ball over the bar for a point or in the net for three points.
There are other games promoted by the governing body, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA,) but they are more recreational in nature. These are Handball, Rounders and Road Bowling.
