The Games

Gaelic Games are the traditional sports played in Ireland. The two main Gaelic games are Gaelic Football and Hurling, both of which are organized by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

Women's versions of Hurling and Football are also played, Camogie organized by the Camogie Association of Ireland  and Ladies' Gaelic Football, organized by the Ladies' Gaelic Football Association.  Both Associations are independant of, but closely assiociated to the GAA.

Irish games and sports predate the known history of Ireland.  Earliest confirmed evidence of the games can be found in an ancient Celtic sporting festival called the Tailteann Games (named after a Celtic Goddess) which began in 1829 BC.
