Irish Sport GAA
The GAA stands for the Gaelic Athletic Association.
It was invented to stop Irish people playing English games like Cricket or Soccer.
They would ban you from playing GAA sports if you played soccar as well.
But its not so very strict now.
Hurling after ice hockey and shooting is the fastest sport around.
I Had an Italian man in the taxi once who had been to a hurling match, he was almost passing out with excitement.

Today Dublin will meet Kerry in the all Ireland football final.
This year has been a fantastic year for Dublin, for myself. Lets hope for victory.
Good luck to you all, we need something like this to take our minds off the news of the day which is all doom and gloom at present.
