Rounders will be part of Feile na nGael this year. Any clubs interested are requested to make contact with the rounders secretary, details below. GAA Rounders is one of the four official GAA sports, along with Gaelic Football, Hurling and Handball. Rounders has been a GAA Sport from the origin of the GAA and was included in the original GAA Charter back in 1884.
It is played by all age groups, from national school children all the way to and including senior level. There are both mixed teams where Boys and Girls, as well as Men and Women can play on the same team, as well as seperate teams for Males & Females. As Rounders is a limited contact sport, it is perfect for both recreational and competitive play. It also draws on a different set of skills than the conventional GAA games and is very good for developing hand-eye coordination.
Any clubs interested or if you have any question please feel free to contact
