Ladies Gaelic Football

Ladies Gaelic Football, as its name suggests is the Ladies version of Ireland’s most popular sport, and can boast almost as much popularity, with 50,000 recently turning up at Croke Park for the Ladies Gaelic Football All-Ireland Championship Final. It is organised, like most GAA sports on a Club and County basis, with County, Provincial and All-Ireland Championships. The season is divided into a Football League (usually held over winter) and a Championship (usually held over summer). The scoring is similar to Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie, with a goal (worth 3 points) and a point (over the bar – worth one point). It is also 15-a-side like Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie.
