Holidays mean Football

No, I’m not talking about the UEFA European Football Championship or the usual beach soccer played with some friends. I’m talking of the most important football championship in the world: the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship. This championship is played by 34 teams, one for each of the counties which form Ireland, and the players do not have a salary. The game is played between two teams of 15 players. You can take the ball with your hands or push it with your feet. You can score goals or put the ball over the bar, the game is exciting and fast. You can read more about it, or watch last year’s final. Enjoy your holidays! Enjoy the game!
