About Camogie

Whats it all about? A Quick Summary of Camogie

The sport of Hurling is an amateur sport and when women play the game it's called Camogie. Hurling used to be played with up to hundreds per side between villages in ancient times. It is now limited to 15.

Hurling is played using a stick (hurl) and a ball (sliotar). The bas (bottom) of the hurl should not exceed 13 cm in width. The hurl is made of ash wood and the sliotar which weighs 90-110 grams should be 21cm in circumference.

There are fifteen players per team, 1 goalkeeper, 6 defenders, 2 midfielders, and 6 forwards. 5 substitutions are allowed per match.

Controlling the game are 1 referee, 2 linesmen, and 4 goal umpires.

Matches consist of two 30-minute halves.

The goals are shaped like an "H". A point is scored if the ball goes over the crossbar and a goal, worth 3 points, is scored if the ball passes under the crossbar.

A player may:
  • strike the sliotar on the ground or in the air with the hurl
  • lift the sliotar off the ground with the hurl;
  • after gaining possession of the sliotar, carry the sliotar, either balancing it or hopping it, on the hurl, and take the sliotar from the hurl into her hand a second time to play it away from her;
  • catch the sliotar with one hand;
  • strike or hand-pass the sliotar with one hand;
  • turn while holding the sliotar;
  • take four steps while holding the sliotar;
  • kick the sliotar.
