The Rounders Association of Ireland Senior Ladies All Ireland Championship in 2003 was dividedinto a Northern Section and a Southern Section, with Desertmartin of Co. Derry winning the Northern title and Bagenalstown of Co. Carlow the Southern title. Dublin’s Limekiln, based in Tymon Park, shocked Desertmartin in the Semi-Finals, but went on to lose the All Ireland Final to Bagenalstown.

About GAA Rounders

Rounders was included in the original Gaelic Athletic Association Charter in 1884 as one one of the four Gaelic Games – the others being Gaelic Football, Hurling, and Handball. 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.
