Gaelic football is a combination of soccer and rugby with a bit of basketball and volleyball thrown in. However, Gaelic originated well before any of these sports, dating back to at least the 14th century. The game is played on a field similar to soccer with a soccer goal and goal posts like football. A team scores three points for a goal and one point for a field goal. There is some physical contact but no tackling and the sport relies more on stamina and accuracy.
The Twin Cities Gaelic Football Club, know as the Lakelanders, has been in existence since 2007. We hold practices and league games and participate in interstate tournaments and the annual National Tournament. We are always looking for new players and everyone is encouraged to play regardless of experience, gender or physical ability. Feel free to come to a practice either Monday or Thursday nights from 6 to 8pm at McDonough Recreation Center in St. Paul. We will also have a demo match at Irish Fair at 7pm on Saturday with a kid's practice 30 minutes beforehand, both at Croagh Park.
