Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The International Rules Series is a senior men's competition between an Irish representative team (selected by the Gaelic Athletic Association) and the Australian representative team (selected by the Australian Football League). The series is played each October after the completion of the Australian Football League Grand Final and All-Ireland Football Final which are both played on the last weekend of September. The matches are played using a set of compromise rules decided upon by both governing bodies known formally as International rules football. While the International Rules Series matches use some rules from Australian rules football, the field, ball and uniforms of both teams are all from gaelic football. The two teams contest a trophy which in 2004 was named the Cormac McAnallen Cup, after a Tyrone Gaelic footballer, Cormac McAnallen, who died that year from a heart condition after representing Ireland in the previous three Series.show more
