GAA World Games

The first International GAA played was the Tailteann Games of 1924-1932, and this was followed by the 1947 All-Ireland Football Final, which was held in New York.

In the 1950s the St. Brendan’s Cup finals were held between New York and the National Football League & National Hurling League winners. In the 1960s there was the World Championship Cup between New York & The All-Ireland Champions.

From thereon New York & London played in the All-Ireland Championship in Football and London, Warwickshire & Lancashire in the Christy Ring, Nicky Rackard & Lory Meaghar Cups.

The World Games is the latest development in the GAA’s World Programme: It is essentially a Provincial Championship for the Americas (New York, United States & Canada in Americas – Native Cup) & World Counties (Europe, Australasia, Asia & Middle East – Irish Cup) with development programmes in Russia, Africa, Caribbean, Latin America & Argentina.

Welsh Baseball

About

Welsh Baseball is the Welsh version of Rounders or Baseball and is their Traditional Celtic Sport. It is played like Baseball or Rounders on a diamond, with the original posts instead of bases like in Medieval Rounders, and the diamond is assymetrical. The bat is more like a cricket bat than a baseball or rounders bat, being slightly flat and tapers from the base to the handle. Points are scored for each base reached and also a point for getting all the way round back home.

The sport is played in mostly working class areas of South Wales and Liverpool, particularly in neighborhoods with a strong Irish Catholic population.

The game was originally Rounders but a visiting American Baseball team played matches in Liverpool against local teams at the turn of the 20th Century (early 1900s), and the English Rounders Association (Liverpool) adopted some of the innovations in Baseball, thus deciding it was no longer Rounders and changed the name. It instructed its counterparts in the Welsh Baseball Union and Gloucester Baseball Union (no longer active) to do the same, thus leading to a hybrid Rounders-Baseball code unique to Wales and Liverpool.

Eton Fives

A Medieval Football game, first organised in Renaissance Florence, Tuscany, Italy, that was first played by workers between breaks in work, and then organised matches beginning in 1530.

The earliest orgainsed Football matches anywhere in the world, as far as Eirball has discovered, although earlier reports in Ancient Europe, Greece, Rome, Italy and China mention similar games, though of what nature is hard to discern – they may just have been children’s catching games.
