Is it possible to sync iCal on Tiger with Google calendar?

Upgrading to 10.5 isn't an option for my G5, but I'd love to be able to use iCal to access the years of calendar data I have on Google Calendar.

It worked! I set up iCal so it's just subscribing to the Google calendars I have, and I have full read/write access. – Neil Fein Feb 24 '11 at 6:06
Great. I'm glad this worked out. – Matthew Bischoff Feb 24 '11 at 9:25

Before upgrading to Leopard, I used GCALDaemon to sync calendars between iCal and Google. It isn't very user friendly and takes a bit to set up, but works pretty well once it is running.
