Lots of our international visitors to our blog have been asking us what G.A.A., hurling and Gaelic football are.
We decided we would write three blogs post about the G.A.A. this week. Here is the first about Gaelic football.
Hi my name is Matthew. My parthner's names are Gavin and Harry. Gaelic football is a sport by the G.A.A. They are the Gaelic Athletic Association. They look after all the sports in Ireland.
Gaelic football is played by using a ball. If you kick it into the goal you get 3 points. You can also kick the ball over the bar for 1 point.
Each team wears a jersey. On the field there will be two jerseys, one light and one dark colour.
Look below to see the crest of our local G.A.A. club St. Brigid's. This is the crest we have on our jerseys when we play a match.
Here is Croke Park. All the important matches are played here. It is in Dublin.
This is the Sam Maguire cup. You get the cup when you win the All Ireland football final. We won the Sam Maguire in 2014 in the final in Croke Park.
This is the Dublin crest. This is the symbol that the Dublin team wear on their jerseys.
