Basically you have a hurl (stick) which is used to hit the ball on the ground and in the air. You balance the ball on the hurl while running. You can catch the ball in your hand but only take 4 steps unless u balance it on the hurl.
Anyways u can easily find the rules elsewhere.
Its a very physical game and the fastest field game in the world, you have to be very skillful to even attempt to play in a match. The aim of the game is to score more then your opponent. The goals are shaped like a H with a point for getting it over the crossbar and 3 points (a goal) for getting it underneath.
Theres no real protective gear besides a helmet which is optional and i don't think i need to tell you that getting hit with a 34-38 inch long piece of wood is going to hurt.
Basically its the greatest game in the world.
Anyways why the interest ?
Is mise le meas,

North American Gaelic Athletic Association.
Theres probably someone in your general area that plays the game. A lot of Irish people go over and play in America for a few months. New York has what you might call a permanent team that competes in the All-Ireland every year.

In 2004 ? Cork
Heres some short video clips from that match. Rebel Gaa Video Clips
Its almost always one of Tipperary, Kilkenny or Cork who win it. Very few others can stand up to them.
You should take it up, absolutely brilliant game.
