dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to investigate if there are differences in the personality profile and achievement goal orientations of male Gaelic Football players in different playing positions. A survey conducted with Gaelic Football players (n = 312) examined the traits of extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism, using the Big Five Inventory (BFI), as well as goal orientations of task orientation and ego orientation using the Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Questionnaire (TEOSQ). A quantitative, between groups design was employed. Results showed that there were no significant differences between backs, midfield players and forwards on any of the personality traits or the goal orientations. The results are contrary to some previous findings in other sporting codes which found that differences do exist between players of different playing position. Possible reasons for the inconsistency are discussed. Author keywords: Personality, Gaelic Football, Achievement Goal Orientation, Task Orientation, Ego Orientationen
