Organisational Guidelines of Camán Abú
Camán Abú is a variation of the traditional Irish game of Hurling, which has been developed to cater for social and recreational players. While Camán Abú has many common features with Hurling, the one significant difference is that it is played as a ground Hurling game. A new hurley and sliotar (ball) have been specifically designed for the game. Camán Abú can be played indoors or outdoors. The Playing Rules reflect the social and recreational nature of Camán Abú.
The underlying philosophy of Camán Abú is that Gaelic Games should be fun, enjoyable and accessible. Camán Abú is a new innovative approach to Gaelic Games and it is hoped that participants shall gain maximum enjoyment and benefit from their involvement in Camán Abú and, in the process, shall experience an enhanced sense of esteem, health and well being.
