Although I’ve been watching the Irish sports of Hurling and Gaelic Football for years, I still rely on my Irish neighbors to explain the rules during every match. Like any sport, there’s more to it than scoring a goal… and each game seems to bring in to focus a different rule.
My visit to the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Museum at Dublin’s Croke Park filled in many of the gaps of what I know about the games, but more importantly, it displayed the cultural identity these sports offer the Irish.
Croke Park offers a Downloadable Game Guide that gives info about the stadium and a quick overview of the games.
