Ladies Gaelic Football

Ladies Gaelic Football is almost identical to its male counterpart being played on the same field with equivalent equipment and under the same basic set of playing rules. There are minor rule variations in comparison with Gaelic Football, in particular players are allowed to pick the ball directly from the ground but the shoulder charge is not allowed when contesting for the ball.

Ladies Gaelic Football is recognised as one of the fastest growing female sports in Europe. Founded in 1974 the Ladies Gaelic Football Association has over 1000 clubs in Ireland and membership growing is by the day, as the game reaches women and girls from all over the country.
