GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
Gaelic football and Hurling
Gaelic football - futbol celtycki (odmiana piłki nożnej), hurling - odmiana hokeja na trawie
Explanation: I doubt very much there's a translation; traditional sports are highly culture-specific.
I would describe them as follows:
Gaelic football: similar to rugby football in that hands can be used, and with similar goal H-shaped posts; points are scored both over the bar and under the bar
Hurling: an ancient and very fast game played with sticks called hurleys, used to propel a ball from one end of the field to the other.
See references below. note that some are German pages in which the original words are used.
Explanation: cytaty: "Ogólnoirlandzki finał hurling (wrzesień): najważniejszy mecz w sezonie hurling, irlandzkiego hokeja na trawie; Dublin."
"pierwowzorami wczesnych gier na lodzie były najprawdopodobniej dawne odmiany (shinty, bandy, hurling) dzisiejszego hokeja na trawie"
