Abstract

Gaelic games are ideally suited to a combination of specific weather conditions: warm but not too humid, bright but overcast, with little or no wind, excellent visibility and a firm ground surface. This is a lot to ask of Ireland's notoriously disobedient weather. As the GAA prepares for a championship which begins in late autumn and concludes in the depths of winter, here's a look at matches which have been played in the most adverse of weather conditions.
