GAA

Gaelic games are broadly referred to as 'GAA' and are the most popular sports played and supported by Corkonians. Gaelic football is played by men and ladies while hurling is played by men and an almost identical version called camogie is played by women.

The GAA season generally runs from February to October when the club county finals are played in Pairc Ui Chaoimh, the association's principle stadium at the Marina - a 25 min walk from the city centre. For more info visit the GAA's Cork website by clicking here
