Nothing beats being there
Grit, glory and national pride: GAA remains one of our most thrilling traditions to watch.
Hurling is a unique Irish sport, the fastest field sport in the world and one of the oldest. It’s older than the recorded history of Ireland – people have been playing hurling on this island for over 2,000 years, and Gaelic football for over 700 years.
There’s nothing like the atmosphere of a GAA match – the flags, the jerseys, the banter, the tension, the excitement: it’s a day for all the family.
Start by following the fortunes of a local team in local clubs attending an inter-county match or include the GAA museum and Croke Park Stadium tour or an Etihad Skyline tour in a day trip to get a sense of the history of Ireland’s national sports.
Want to play yourself? The GAA is one of Ireland’s most dynamic grassroots associations – there are about 2,000 clubs, north and south – so finding one is never hard.

The world of Irish sport is just a click away.
