About this app

GameSense was born out of our involvement with Paul Kinnerk in the Limerick Football academy. Paul introduced us to his philosophy and over the past 7 years we have used games as the primary method in teaching skills and tactical awareness in Gaelic Football. Through our involvement with schools we have seen the same approach work just as well with hurling. During our time with the academy we have designed hundreds of games that cover a wide range of themes within the game and we want to make these games accessible in a simple, easy to use manner, so that every coach can see the benefit of using games in their training sessions.
