Camogie is almost identical to its male counterpart Hurling, being played on the same field with equivalent equipment and under the same basic set of playing rules. There are minor rule variations in comparison with Hurling, in particular players are allowed to drop the hurley when playing the ball away, and are allowed to play the opponents hurley to contest for the ball but are not allowed to shoulder charge. A player may hand pass the ball to score a goal or a point.
The full version of the playing rules can be reviewed here.
