Be Sure With Gaelic Sports Gear
Gaelic sports are those played in Ireland (and around the world) that are governed under the rules of the Gaelic Athletic Association. Whether you’re a sports fan or a player, you’ll find everything you need for the game on eBay.
What are Gaelic sports?
The Gaelic Games family includes six different games - hurling, Gaelic football, handball, rounders, camogie, and ladies football.
Hurling is a stick-and-ball sport in which 15 players compete in a rectangular grass pitch – and there are H-shaped goals at each end. The idea is to score by driving the ball through the goals or over the bar, resulting in a point. The game dates back over three thousand years and is said to be the world's fastest field game, mixing abilities from lacrosse, field hockey, and baseball. Camogie is a variant of the game of hurling and is a stick-and-ball team sport played by women.
Gaelic football is also played on a rectangular grass surface, again with H-shaped goals and 15-man teams. Players score by driving the ball into the goals or by kicking the ball over the bar. Ladies' football is a female variant of the game.
Gaelic handball has two players hit a ball against a wall with their hands, while rounders is an Irish bat-and-ball game; similar to softball.
