The teams then continue on to the semi-final so that, at the end, the créeme de la créeme have a meeting at Croke Park for the All Ireland final.

Handball, handball or handball is a ball sport in which two teams face each other, characterized by carrying the ball with the hands.
One of the basic rules is that players cannot take more than 4 consecutive steps while holding the ball. If a player has a clear field and wants to advance to the opposite side, he can bounce the ball on the ground, similar to the movement performed in basketball. Also, to advance the player can toe-tap, which consists of bouncing the ball with the toe of the foot. In this way, it is possible to take 4 new steps and so on.
It is important to mention that the player has the right to carry the ball in his hands, but he cannot lift it off the ground with them.

Hurling is, very crudely explained, a wild, fast-paced mix of rugby, field hockey and baseball. I know this description won’t appeal to Irish people but it’s a quick way to get an idea, because I don’t want to go into details about the rules either. There is a lot of contact and a lot of bad blood. I remember Gearoid, some afternoons, coming home with some of his eyebrows split open. I’d ask him, “What happened to you, man?” And he would answer succinctly and eloquently, as I helped him put on some band-aids, “Just hurling.” In a macho Irish way, he would defiantly tell me that surely more people had died playing hurling (before, helmets were not mandatory and blows to the head could be deadly) than bullfighting. He meant, of course, that they had even more balls than us, and that’s when the cockfighting began, as primitive as it was fun.
