    Yeah. We don't have a photo of Irish football.

    If you are reading this story, you are just as curious as we are about the upcoming Texas Gaelic Football Championship.
     
    On Saturday, Lake Highlands Park off Buckner will host the championship games.

    The game, featuring teams from Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston, consists of a unique cross between rugby and soccer. The winning team will take home the coveted Texas Cup.
     
    In addition to the fast-paced football of Ireland, there will be Irish dancing from a local Dallas school between games. Who knew there were schools in Dallas offering Irish dance lessons?
     
    If you’re looking for something unique and cultural to experience, check out the game on Saturday... And if you're really interested in a good time, the pub crawl after the game starts at Idle Rich Pub in Uptown at 8 p.m.
