These are only played in Ireland, and the main activities are Gaelic football and hurling, although organising body the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) also runs versions of rounders and handball.
Hurling is a stick-and-ball sport in which teams of 15 play on a rectangular grass pitch with H-shaped goals at either end. Gaelic football uses a similar field shape and team size.
You can bet on Gaelic Games all year round, with markets including All-Ireland Senior Football, the Camogie and Hurling Championships, plus the All-Ireland club championships and the Allianz leagues. So there’s always stacks of action.
Increasingly, bookies (and not just those in Ireland) are offering odds on these markets. Equally, coverage of events from Sky Sports, BBC Northern Ireland and other broadcasters is expanding.
Key options include in-play betting, simple ‘to win’ flutters, handicap markets, winning margin and first-to-score punts, plus total points wagers, among various others.
