Other Clarifications

Competition Grade Changes:

For Club football, competition grades changed from U-14, U-16 & U-18 grades to U-13, U-15 & U-17 in 2021 & 2022 before reverting back in 2023, while U-21 grade changed to U-20 from 2018 to 2021 before reverting back in 2022. 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. Additionally, Féile na nÓg & Féile na nGael both changed from U-14 to U-15 grade in 2021.

Gaeilge-Béarla Confusion:

From 1958 we see club names appearing ‘As Gaeilge’ in published notes and fixtures in local newspapers for the first time, 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 some clubs and thereafter we see Killoe Young Emmets cited as Emmet Óg and Drumlish Yong Irelands cited as Éire Óg in club notes, fixtures and match reports throughout the 1960’s, long after other clubs had reverted to their club naming ‘As Bearla’ in published records. The Éire Óg club name disappeared in 1969 when Éire Óg (Drumlish) and Ballinamuck clubs united to form Fr. Manning Gaels. The Killoe Young Emmets name has been in use since 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 new variant in the 2000’s. The Young Grattans club reformed in 1980 for the first time since 1954. Prior to the revival, 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 for underage Independent Teams in 1999 and 2000. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 1999 Minor Division 2 league was a combination of Killoe and Ballymore. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 2000 Minor Division 2 league was a combination of Killoe and Clonbroney. The Camlin Rovers winners of the 2000 Juvenile Championship was a combination of Clonbroney and St. Francis.
