Introduction to Irish Sports

Introduction to Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football

Joe Lavy of the Seattle Gaels, and Jeremy Ward of the Tacoma Rangers provide a brief introduction to the national sports of Ireland: Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football. These sports have histories that go back thousands of years, and are integral to the culture and history of Ireland and the Irish people. 

In the United States and around the world, these sports are growing in popularity for even the non-Irish. They combine skills of hockey, baseball, soccer, basketball and other sports American’s are already familiar with, but in a way that is new, exciting and different.¬†
