  • To tip an opponent's hurley so they can't get the ball

  • To play the ball a second time from a free puck unless it strikes another play or the goal-posts

    Aggressive fouls, which are punished with a red card are:

  • Striking or attempting to strike an opponent, team-mate or match official with any part of the body, or the hurley or stamping on them
  • To behave in a dangerous manner

    Dissent is a separate law within the rules of GAA.

    Included in this are:

  • Challenging the authority of a match official
  • To show dissent with the referee's decision to award a free to the opposition

    When a foul is committed, the game is restarted with a free or a throw-in from where the offence took place.

    If one of the aggressive fouls occurs inside the large rectangle, or any foul in the small rectangle, then a penalty kick/puck is awarded which is taken from the 13m line.
