Camogie

The Toughest Women On Grass

Description

Camogie is a women’s “ball and stick sport” nearly exactly similar to men’s hurling. Originally tested in 1903, the first camogie association was formalized in 1905 entirely by women, independent of the already-established Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Optimally using 15 players per side, all participants use a hurley, a stick with a flat surface on the end for hitting the sliotar, which is a ball the size of a tennis ball. Points are scored on an H-shaped goal, both above the crossbar for one point, or underneath into the goal for three points.

Camogie is perfect for ladies who have enjoyed playing lacrosse, field hockey, ice hockey, softball, or its direct cousin, shinty.
