About Our Club

Gaelic Football is played on a rectangular grass pitch with H-shaped goals at each end. Our game is high octane, full of speed, precision, accuracy, and intensity. It is played with a ground ball and both hands and feet are used to control and pass the ball. There are 15 players on each team, with only 1 referee. The primary objective is to score by driving the ball through or over the goals. If the ball is sent over the bar of the goals, this equates to One Point. If it goes under bar, into the goalmouth, this equates to Three Points. The team with the highest score at the end of the match wins. 

The female version of the game is known as Ladies’ Gaelic football and is very similar to the men’s game, with just a few minor rule changes.

Why do people like to play?

“Gaelic games are more a cultural expression than a sporting activity,” 

“It teaches young people lessons for life in relation to sharing, teamwork and appreciating the different skills people have – it’s really a template for life.” 

“It’s the excitement walking onto the football field, knowing that you have 60mins ahead of you of full intensity and the feeling at the end when you win”
