Peil Faoi Dhíon – Rules

The normal rules of Gaelic football shall apply with the following amendments:

1. One hop, one solo rule will apply.

2. A score can only be scored from within the opponents half.

3. A "point" will be awarded when the football is played by hand into the goal.

4. A "goal" will be awarded when the football is played by foot into the goal.

5. A 4 foot zone along the walls will be marked out and no player shall be allowed to enter this ‘exclusion zone’.

6. Any player who engages in deliberate rough play and forces an opponent against the wall will concede a penalty kick. This kick will be taken from mid-way between the half way line and the opponents goal.

7. All back and side walls are in play.

8. The ball can be picked cleanly from the ground as in ladies football.

9. 6 players on the pitch at a time, though this may vary according to the venue size. First Touch football shall be used.

10. A team who kicks the ball off the roof will concede possession to their opponents and play shall continue. 

11. Peil Faoi Dhíon should be non-contact. Incidental contact is permitted, except near the boundary walls.

Guidelines for Co-Ordinators

  • Co-ordinators should try to ensure that the competitions start on time as all of the halls will be needed later in the afternoon. The playing order of the matches is not important.
  • Co-ordinators may, should they feel necessary due to time constraints, reduce the match time for games. This should be done in consultation with the other teachers representing the other schools.
  • Co-ordinators must line out an exclusion zone along the walls, using cones, as specified in the Peil Faoi Dhíon Rules attached. This is especially important so as to ensure the safety of all players.
  • Co-ordinators should have a copy of the Indoor Football playing rules and arrangements on them at the venue.
  • Co-ordinators should arrange refereeing at the venue on the day and no teacher should be refereeing his or her own school.
  • Co-ordinators should display the fixtures/results clearly on a poster at the venue for the information of players, teachers and supporters alike.
