Gaelic Football

The international governing body for Men’s Gaelic Football is the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and the governing body for Ladies Gaelic Football is the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA).

To learn more about Gaelic Football and to find Coaching resources go to the GAA Learning Centre or the LGFA Learning Centre.

There are many different skills involved in the game of Gaelic Football. Many of these skills can be performed on the ground, without the need to get the ball into the hand and out of the hand. The skills can be broadly broken down into those that involve:

  • Gaining Possession
  • Maintaining Possession
  • Releasing Possession
  • Contesting Possession
