Best Answer

One of the first written mentions known is from 1308, when John McCrocan, a spectator at a football game in Dublin, was charged with accidentally stabbing a player named William Bernard., but it would have evolved from sports played in Europe in the Middle Ages that would also have led to games like soccer, Rugby, Australian Rules Football and American Football.

Gaelic Football is played all through the year. Matches are played on the 1st of January through to the 31st of December. Gaelic Football has many levels and different kinds of teams. The main and highest level is senior county teams. Their main matches are played during the spring, summer and autumn. Players also have their own clubs that they play for and lots of club matches are played during the winter because there are less county matches, but also through the rest of the year, as many club players do not play for their counties.

Like with any ball sport, small children start to play Gaelic Football. Organised teams start in schools, so children of 4 to 7 play very simplified Gaelic Football. As they get older the game becomes more serious and there are more formal competitions.

Hurling team members in Ireland?

There are a huge number of Hurling teams in Ireland. There are over 2500 GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) clubs in Ireland. Many of these clubs have multiple hurling teams, for different age categories and levels of ability. There are teams for both men and women. The game played by women, has some different rules than that played by men, and it is officially called Camogie. Each team consists of 15 players and for any individual team there would be many others trying to get on a team. So the amount of people playing hurling in Ireland is in the hundreds of thousands.

How many subs in hurling?

That is an extremely difficult question to answer. There are about 2500 GAA clubs in Ireland. Not all would have Hurling teams, but those that do would have several teams, usually split by age categories. Some of the larger clubs would have a large amount of teams. You also have school and college teams, some again having several age categories. There are also teams from workplaces. Then on top of that you have county teams, again with various age groups. So you are talking thousands of individual teams. That is the best estimate you are going to get.

The GAA is the Gaelic Athletic Association. It was founded on the 1st of November, 1884, in Thurles, County Tipperary, Ireland.

Gaelic Games themselves have been around for many centuries, but would not have been around in the Stone Age.

Who is going to win the All-Ireland?

That question cannot be answered. Firstly, there are many "All-Irelands" in various sports and competitions. Presuming you are talking about GAA, then you have Hurling, Gaelic Football, Camogie and the other sports that the GAA covers, all with many grades, like club, schools, colleges right up to county and then there are also the age grades. So even just within the GAA, there are a huge number of All-Irelands. You have not specified which "All-Ireland" you mean. Secondly WikiAnswers is here to answer questions and cannot predict the future, so even if your question was very specific about what All-Ireland you meant, the question still cannot be answered.
