Lots of our international visitors to our blog have been asking us what G.A.A., hurling and Gaelic football are.
We decided that we would write three blogs post about the G.A.A. this week. Here is the second about hurling.
Our names are Finn and Philip. Hurling is a sport only played in Ireland. You have a hurley and a helmet. You play with a really small ball. It's called a sliothar. Look down to see them all in the picture.
You play against your opponents. We do hurling at our club. Our team is called St. Brigid's. This is the crest.
In a hurling match you play for 70 minutes. We play for shorter because we are young. There are two halves in a match. We have a break between the halves. Our manager is called Ronan. We train during the week or in the mornings.
We play matches at the weekends. Here is a picture of a hurling match.
Like Gaelic football if you hit the ball into the goal for 3 points. If you hit it over the bar you get a point.
