About GAA Rounders

It wasn’t until the 1950s, however, that any effort was made to organise the game, when the Erin’s Own Club in Antrim started a Rounders section and made efforts to promote the game throughout Ireland.The Senior Men’s All-Ireland Championship has been run since 1976, and is currently run on a Round-Robin League basis, with the top four reaching the Semi-Finals.

The Senior Mixed All-Ireland Championship has been run since 1990, and currently is run on a Round-Robin League basis, with the top four reaching the Semi-Finals.
