What are Gaelic games?
Originating in Ireland, the main Gaelic games governed by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in Ireland are Hurling/Camogie and Gaelic football. Camogie is the women's version of Hurling and there is ladies' Gaelic football as well. The United States Gaelic Athletic Association (USGAA) oversees the development of Gaelic games in the United States.
In Hurling and Gaelic football, the scoring system is the same. The target is a set of H posts like in rugby but with a net on the bottom section like in soccer. Players on two teams of thirteen must put the ball in the net for three points or above the net for one point.
