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.
