Default Gaelic Football

Gaelic Football is a field game which has developed as a distinct game similar to the progression of Australian Rules.

The ball used in Gaelic Football is round, slightly smaller than a soccer ball. It can be carried in the hand for a distance of four steps and can be kicked or "hand-passed", a striking motion with the hand or fist. After every four steps the ball must be either bounced or "solo-ed", an action of dropping the ball onto the foot and kicking it back into the hand. You may not bounce the ball twice in a row. To score, you put the ball over the crossbar by foot or hand / fist for one point or under the crossbar and into the net by foot or the hand / fist in certain circumstances for a goal, the latter being the equivalent of three points. Each team consists of 15 players.

Peter,

There's a lot of action here and contact but is there full body tackling as in Rugby football?

Asher, thanks for looking and your comments, there is no tackling in Gaelic Football.

I will post some hurling photos in the next couple of days, it is one of the fastest field sports.

.... but then, Peter, what are the limits on grabbing. I see a lot of hand contact!
