About Gaelic Football

Gaelic Football is one of the four original GAA Charter Sports of 1884, and the most popular, played to the highest level throughout the 32 Counties as well as 14 Counties around the World. It is 15-a-side and Goals (worth 3 Points) are scored as well as Points (Over the Bar – worth 1 Point). it is organised like most GAA Games on a County, Provincial and All-Ireland basis with Club Competitions providing the bedrock of the game, and the best club players representing their counties. Within both Club and County Competitions there is the League (usually run over the winter months) and the Championship (usually run over the summer months).

The Junior Club Championships are the third division Adult Championships, with the County Champions qualufying for the Provincial Championships, the winners of which go on to the All-Ireland Championships. The Britain GAA Junior Champions also qualify for the All-Ireland Junior Championships.
