Irish attacking drill

Seven players lined up behind the posts, with another seven players opposite. One of the players under the posts kicks the ball to the seven players. The player who kicks the ball then acts as a defender. The aim is for the attacking team to score without being touched.

After they have accomplish this with one defender, then make it 2 defenders, 3 and so on, until they fail to score (get touched, ball handling error).

Step 1. Start with 1 player attacking

Step 2. They should try and touch a player with the ball.

Step 3. When the attacking team score increase the number of defenders 2 - 3 - 4 etc... until the attacking team struggle to score.
