Research Title: Effect moderate and high intensity training on speed and power in Gaelic football players

Gaelic football is the most popular sport in Ireland and involves the execution of motor skills within an environment of intense physical contact. The physiological demands of Gaelic games are determined in large part by the activity patterns of the game. Many of the activities in Gaelic football involve acceleration, speed, and power. No studies have evaluated the effect of different training methods on indices of speed and power in Gaelic football. Cathal`s graduate research programme examines the effect of different training intensities on body composition, aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity, speed and power in Gaelic football players
