There is more information about the sport on this link:-

As you may have gathered, it is a different sport to the Handball referred to on another thread.

There's an auto generator thing on twitter that spews (team) handball stories out and every so often its filter fails and we get a GAA story.

It looks an interesting sport.

It has some similarities to some of the forms of pelota and fives, based on hitting the ball against a wall with the hands.

It is not a big sport in Ireland really.

Corrected! :)

(No one has ever explained that phrase to me - is there some sort of craic scale, where 100 is basically craic maximum?)
