GAA Go Games at Dunmore Pitch, June 2016



Ms Murphy’s and Ms Tyrrell’s 3rd class participated in GAA Go Games at the pitch in Dunmore on June 2nd. Children from schools in Mullinavat and Ballyhale also attended on the day. Go Games are small-sided versions of Hurling and Gaelic Football which have been devised for children up to and including 11 years of age. The event was extremely well organised and all children really enjoyed all the activities. Thank you to all involved in the organisation of the day.

The term Go Games has its origins in children’s sport. Keen observers will recognise that when children play games amongst themselves, everyone will get a “Go” and will do so for the entire “Game”. Hence the term Go Games is used in Gaelic games to identify small-sided hurling and football games called Go Hurling and Go Gaelic respectively. The playing rules and equipment for these games are modified to ensure that participants develop the basic skills of the game and derive maximum fun and enjoyment while doing so.
