    GAA - Football, Camogie and I suppose Men's Camogie Discussions

    Hurling is taken serious in about 10 counties, how they can call it an All-Ireland is beyond me. Sure half the teams don't even compete in the All-Ireland proper.

    While every county in Ireland, bar the feline lovers, take part in the All-Ireland Football Championship, it even has two foreign 'Counties" in New York and London.

    Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football, not Bogball as Interista Gallese calls it, are the national sports of Ireland. They are all part of the GAA.

    As he calls it to get a rise out of the Irish posters on here . Seriously though, Gaelic Football may be more popular but its really because its the easier to play and its very hard to make a solid case for saying its a more beautiful sport than hurling. Relax though, I'm on a wind-up by calling it bogball, though I do stand by my saying hurling is better!

    What's your reckoning for the forthcoming season anyway?

    Ashamed to say but I don't really give a toss about GAA. But I'd prefer ''bogball' over ''stickball''

    Kildare for Leinster in the Football, we have an easy path to the final, if we win it we could go all the way for Sam.

    The Cats should win everything in Hurling.

    Translates literally as Little Britain, which I find amusing.

    Don't even get me started on how correctly named Ireland is .

    I think Dublin will be tricky enough for ye in Leinster though and I have a feeling Tipp are coming quick in the hurling though possibly not fast enough for this year.

    Whilst in both Irish "thoin" and Welsh "twch tyn" both literally mean black hole.

    Dublin are the team to beat no doubt, but they have the tougher side of the draw. Meath, Laois and Wexford are all on their side. The only team that is worrying for us is Wicklow, so we are pretty much gonna make the final.

    Plus Dublin are more concerned with an All-Ireland than they are with another Leinster. Wouldn't be surprised if they didn't take Leinster all too serious this year.

    please, your kidding? It's a sport like your "soccer", but with out the camp, fag, playacting, handbag players you see in soccer, it's a tough and hard hitting, real football

    How can something where feet is mostly used for walking/running can be called football and the sport where people only kick a ball with their feet is not, is beyond me

    I agree, NFL Football just completely seems ridiculous. It's like call Soccer 'Handball' because you throw it into play.

    The majority of scores in Gaelic football are scored by kicking the ball, either over the bar or into the goal. Only a very small number of scores are got by fisting the ball, so football is a legitimate name.

    Also there are several sports under the umbrella term of football, all with equal claim to the use of the name football. Soccer is 'Association Football' not just football, people seem to think that soccer has some sort of divine right to be solely called 'Football' because it is the most popular.

    Football is an English word and in the lots of English speaking countries Football refers to a sport other than Association Football. In Ireland its Gaelic, in the USA it's NFL, in Canada it's CFL, in New Zealand it's Rugby, in Australia it's either Aussie Rules or Rugby depending on which part of the country you're in.

    So it would be very arrogant to assume that Association Football should be the only one allowed to use the name Football, even though I do accept that it has the most claim to the name in regards to the meaning of the word.
