Paintball In Ireland


First invented 40 years ago, paintball is a fun action-filled activity that is suitable for people of all ages. It is a competitive sport consisting of teams where players eliminate the opposing team members by shooting paintballs at them. These paintballs are gelatin capsules that are filled with dye and are shot from paintball markers. The markers are low energy weapons using compressed air or carbon dioxide that allows the ammunition to be released from the chamber when the trigger is pulled.

The History Of Paintball

These paintball games were developed in May of 1981 in New Hampshire when Hayes Noel and Charles Gaines had a debate about who would be able to survive in the woods longer; one being from the city and the other a man able to hunt, fish and build cabins. Upon seeing an advert in a farm catalogue for a paint gun, the idea formed and the argument was settled by competing against each other.

Although a recreational sport, paintball also hosts tournaments which consists of professional teams and players. There are a variety of game types to choose from as paintball can be played both indoors as well as outdoors.
