For Club hurling, competition grades changed from U-14, U-16, U-18 & U-21 grades to U-13, U-15, U-17 & U-21 in 2021.

From 1958 we suddenly see most club names appearing ‘As Gaeilge’ in club notes and fixtures in local media, reputedly the result of an initiative by the County Board secretary of the day. While most club names appeared in Irish in fixtures and club notes from around 1958 and through the 1960’s, the Irish version stuck for Killoe Young Emmets and Drumlish Young Irelands clubs in particular, who continued to be cited as Emmet Óg and Éire Óg in club notes, fixtures and eventually match reports throughout the 1960’s while other clubs reverted to their original English naming convention. The Éire Óg club name disappeared in 1969 when Éire Óg and Ballinamuck clubs united to form Fr. Manning Gaels. The Killoe the Young Emmets name has been in use since the clubs founding in 1903, with Emmet Óg used interchangeably with Killoe Young Emmets from late 1950’s to the 2000’s, and Killoe Emmet Óg appearing as a variant in the 2000’s. The official club name since 1903 remains Killoe Young Emmets. The Young Grattans club reformed in 1980 for the first time since 1954. Prior to the reforming, the club had always been called Young Grattans, and from around 1982 we also see the use of Grattan Óg alongside Young Grattans.
Camlin Rovers Clarified:
The Camlin Rovers name was initially used in the early 1900’s by the GAA club in Clonbroney. Previous records assumed that the 1919 SFC winning Clonbroney team was called Clonbroney Camlin Rovers, however there is no record of the ‘Camlin Rovers’ name in use in any of the years prior to and following that title win. The Clonbroney club was later renamed Seán Connollys from 1935. Over the years the ‘Camlin Rovers’ name also appeared in parish leagues and in Association Football (Soccer) local leagues in Longford. The name re-appeared in GAA context in underage amalgamations in 1999 and 2000. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 1999 Minor Division 2 league was a team comprising Killoe and Ballymore. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 2000 Minor Division 2 league was a team comprising Killoe and Clonbroney. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 2000 Juvenile Championship was a team comprising Clonbroney and St. Francis.
