What is Gaelic Football?
Gaelic football, commonly referred to as "Gaelic" or "football", is an old sport originating in Ireland. Gaelic football as it is known today dates back to the late 19th century while the first historical recording of the sport dates back to the early 14th century. Gaelic is the most popular sport in Ireland today, and is growing fast around the world.
Like soccer and basketball, there is no other equipment needed to play Gaelic football other than the ball itself. The leather ball is about the same size and weighs a little bit more than a soccer ball.
