Irish hurling is a sport with roots dating 3000 years ago. The sport is played on a large field by players each carrying a stick, traditionally made of ash. The point is to score a goal by striking a ball (sliotar) into a soccer-sized goal, or a point by hitting it above. Hurling is known as the fastest field sport in the world.
Camogie is the sport of hurling as it is called when played by ladies. The rules are adjusted minimally.
Galic football is played with a bigger ball, with foundations of rules based on hurling. Other than playing with your feet and no stick, the rules are remarkably similar.
These are three of the sports administered by the Gaelic Athletic Association in Ireland. They are played primalry in Ireland, but have been gaining popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
