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.
