"...Use TeamsOnTour, their personal service is unrivalled. Was the best event I have been to in ages, and I have done a lot of Rugby tours...."
For some great team building action, trying your hands at different sports is always a winner and a trip to Dublin will provide you with not one but three different sports for the squad to tackle.
Hurling - Considered to be the oldest team sport in the world dating back over 3,000 years, there is evidence of hurling dating back to prehistoric times. "Hurley" is actually the stick used in the game which is then used to dribble and hit the ball. Players can also handle the ball. Points are scored by hitting the ball through the upright (rugby style) goal posts for a single point or into the goal past a keeper for three points.
Handball - As seen at recent Olympic Games, handball is a massive sport many other parts of the world and in certain countries is more popular than football. Teams of seven players move the ball from by throwing and travelling with the ball and points are scored by throwing the ball into the goal. A fast and furious sport, most handball games are high scoring, the rules are fairly easy to pick up.
Gaelic Football - Scoring is achieved in the same was as hurling, however in Gaelic football the hurleys have been removed and the small hard ball is substituted for a larger inflated ball (roughly the same size as Association Football). Gaelic football is Ireland's most popular sport yet strict guidelines means players and coaches must remain amateur. The sport is very close to Aussie Rules Football and indeed a hybrid sport has been created, 'International Rules Football' with a series of test matches between the two Ireland and Australia.
Will be coached in all three events before taking to the field, your instructors will become referees for the games to ensure fair play, help facilitate the rules and also give tips on tactics and technique.
This is a fantastic activity to take the teams out of their comfort zones while still providing some great competitive action with sports that most of your team will have heard of but not had many opportunities to try.
Our Gaelic Games activity is also a great way to build up a thirst ahead of a big team night out.
