    Gaelic Games

    "The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) (Irish: Cumann Lúthchleas Gael (CLG)) is an Irish and international amateur sporting and cultural organisation, focused primarily on promoting Gaelic games, which include the traditional Irish sports of hurling, camogie, Gaelic football, handball and rounders. The GAA also promotes Irish music and dance, and the Irish language."




    Hurling



    Football




    (Gaelic games also includes Gaelic Handball which for the most part is the same as American Handball and rounders. Camogie is the female version of Hurling. Women also compete in the Ladies Football Championship)


    Scoring:
    Point = 1ps
    Goal = 3pts

    Eg. 4-17 = 29pts, 1-21 = 24pts, 4-8 = 20pts etc.



    Provinces & Counties - the 6 counties of Northern Ireland compete in the All-Ireland and Ulster Hurling and Football Championships

    Leinster:
    Dublin
    Kilkenny
    Wexford
    Wicklow
    Kildare
    Laois
    Offaly
    Longford
    Meath
    Westmeath
    Louth

    Munster:
    Kerry
    Cork
    Limerick
    Clare
    Waterford
    Clare

    Ulster:
    Antrim
    Armagh
    Fermanagh
    Derry
    Tyrone
    Down
    Monaghan
    Donegal
    Cavan

    Connacht:
    Galway
    Mayo
    Sligo
    Roscommon
    Leitrim

    * New York and London enter the All-Ireland Football Championship via the Connacht Football Championship whilst London enter the All-Ireland Hurling Championship via the Leinster Hurling Championship.

    * Due to the gap in talent between the top hurling and lesser counties, the numbers competing in the All-Ireland Hurling Championship is significantly lower than football/total counties. Thus Galway and Antrim compete in the Leinster Hurling Championship to remain competitive and for travel purposes.

    *Kilkenny are the only county to not enter the All-Ireland Football Championship

    Each Province has their own Provincial Championship. The 4 winners in Football go to the All-Ireland Football Championship Quarter Finals. In Hurling there are essentially only 2 Provincial Championships, Leinster & Munster. The winners of each go to the All-Ireland Semi Final. Both Football and Hurling Championships have a Qualifiers Series to allow counties that have lost their first game a chance to progress again. This was introduced to give a county more than 1 game per year.

    Considering the training they do, I can't believe it's classed as an amateur sport!!

    It's crazy, 4-5 days a week. The average age of a team is coming down dramatically.

    The majority of Kilkenny lads that are brought into the panel the last few years are single and working near enough to Kilkenny. There are a few better options (panel wise anyhow) but they have families and stuff and just can't put in the commitment.

    I'll be leaving the football chat to the rest of ye, tis not even a sport here. Id say there's easily more lads playing handball here than football.

    Won the soccer version of the all-ireland 5 times though (oscar traynor trophy)

    Yeah, well, in all fairness Ulster isn't exactly renowned for its hurling, and with Armagh's recent performances football doesn't seem to give me any hope, oh well. I'll just have to admire the other counties for this year...

    I'll have €5 on each of those wing forwards for the craic. Gonna be nursing a hangover (Cat Laughs Comedy festival on this weekend) though so football be low on the list of viewing choices!

    Armagh gonna take a bit of time to replace the Crossmaglen boys, both on the pitch and mentally. Is Ronan Clarke still going?

    Ronan Clarke is plagued with injury

    http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/late...plans-1.550336

    He's not going to be playing this season for sure, he was trying to get back at club level but he's not there yet, at 29 it looks unlikely that he'll ever play for seriously for Armagh again, with his injury history unfortunately. Shame was a damn fine player. Let me know how the Cat Laughs goes actually, I do a bit of stand-up myself wasn't able to go down for it this year, I hope it goes well

    Sky were late sponsors this year but about twice the numbers expected already this year, most shows sold out (plenty of shows were being sold on the door last year). Next year could be spectacular with Sky's backing. Should see the likes of the Mock of the Week panel and stuff back next year. No sponsor for 2 yrs previous so great it didnt get shelved.


    Clarke wont get over those injuries Id say. Achilles needs nearly full time care to correct properly. Pro's might be able to afford the time to get it fixed but amateurs not a hope

    Not many shocks this weekend.

    Clare starting to bring the youth through, good to see.

    Yep, Clare looking good for the future. Tony Kelly looks like a real prospect. Waterford have some nice young hurlers coming through too.

    They do but still reliant on Seamus Prendergast to win primary ball in the forwards. The fact he's was barely mentioned in the 2nd half shows how to stop Waterford rather too easily.

    Kilkenny conceding 4 goals to Offaly was a surprise but 3 of them were awful individual blunders as opposed to worrying all round play.

    Limerick Vs Tipp was a decent match in the heat. Tipp look leaderless. Seamus Callanan on frees with Kelly on the bench and Pa Bourke only playing due to Forde's illness, doesn't make sense. Pa Bourke seems to be getting a raw deal.

    I was watching that alright, decent game enough. Wexford beating Louth in the football was a bit of a surprise. Ben Brosnan scored 5 or 6, should do well for me on fantasy gaelic

    Wexford have a decent full forward line. That goal from Diarmuid Lyng was class

    Ciaran Lyng, not Diarmuid. I remember well, he scored about 2-5 against us a few years ago

    That fella on the Sunday game gave Wexford an awful slating, said he felt disgusted after the match. I was disgusted too, I hate seeing Dublin winning anything
