 Gaelic Games are the traditional sports played in Ireland. The two main Gaelic games are Gaelic football and Hurling, both of which are organised in Ireland by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and specialised clubs in other countries. Other games organised by the association include Rounders and Gaelic handball.

Women's versions of Hurling and football are also played, Camogie organised by the Camogie Association of Ireland and Ladies' Gaelic football organised by the Ladies' Gaelic Football Association. While women's versions are not organised by they are closely associated with the GAA.
