Best Answer

It is quiet hard. It has a cork centre, covered by leather. So it is harder than a tennis ball, but not as hard as a Baseball ball or a cricket ball.

What the difference between Gaelic Football and Hurling?

The most obvious difference is the fact that Gaelic football is played with a round ball, similar to soccer's ball, and Hurling uses a stick and smaller ball. Quite a lot of the rules are the same, like scoring, amounts of players, time for matches, how far a ball can be carried, positions on the field. Hurling is much faster and more skill is needed. Each has its own specific rules too, but they are related games.
