About the Program

Hurling and Gaelic Football are Irish field games. Gaelic Football is played with a round football which can be caught, kicked and hand passed and Hurling is played with a stick, called a hurley, and a ball called a sliotar.

We welcome players of all levels, no experience necessary. We provide the equipment, which you can take home to play during the season. Our season usually kicks off in May with pre-season indoor practices before moving in June to our home base at the Doughtery Athletic Field in Portland, Maine.
