Hurling is an outdoor team sport played predominantly in Ireland. The game dates back to more than 3000 years. It is a native game of Ireland and shares much familiarity with its counterpart the Gaelic football. It also shares a common Gaelic root with the sport of shinty (camanachd), which is played predominantly in Scotland. The Gaelic Athletic Association is the governing body of hurling which governs the Gaelic football too.
The professional matches are played on a rectangular field which is very similar to the rugby ground.
Following are the dimensions of the Gaelic football field:-
Should be 130-145 meters in length and 80-90 meters in width
There are two H-shaped goal posts at each end of the field which usually are 6-7m long, and are fixed at a distance of 6.5m from each other. A crossbar connects the posts at the height of 2.5 meters above the ground.
