Now that Cheltenham is over for another year, Irish sports gambling fans can turn their attention back to their other favourite sports. Horse racing will of course remain high on their list of gambling options, along with football which is fast approaching the sharp end of the season, but in Ireland there is also the GAA season to consider. For many in Ireland gambling on GAA sports fixtures is their favourite gambling option, and this weekend provides a full programme of matches for them to choose from. This afternoon sees Crossmaglen odds on favourites to beat Garrycastle at football, with similar odds making Coolderry favourites to beat Loughgiel Shamrocks at Hurling. Sunday provides even more opportunities for GAA sports gambling, with sixteen football matches and nine Hurling games to test our abilities to pick a winner. Clearly, as with many of our other favourite gambling sports, there is a tendency to follow and back our favourite football or hurling team but we also take more than a passing interest in the fortunes and form of our rivals, so there is always the opportunity pick a surprise result. Sports gambling in Ireland, as with most other countries in the world tends to be concentrated on what are termed internationally recognised sports, but the GAA sports represent a significant extra sports gambling opportunity for Irish sports fans much as baseball does in America. If you are a sports gambling fan and know a bit about the GAA sports, why not log on to the Paddy Power online sports gambling site and pick a winner. The GAA sports belong to you so take advantage of this extra specifically Irish gambling option.
