Change to 'As Gaeilge'

From 1958 and through the 1960’s, club notes in local newspapers started to display club names in Irish. This led to some club names being displayed in Irish in fixtures too from that point. This in turn led to some clubs (in particular Killoe Young Emmets and Drumlish Young Irelands – both of whom had never been described As Gaeilge prior to that) being referenced as Emmet Óg and Éire Óg respectively in match reports and fixtures from 1958 and throughout the 1960’s. The Éire Óg name disappeared in March 1969 when Éire Óg and Ballinamuck clubs united to form Fr. Manning Gaels. The Young Grattans club was reformed in 1980 for the first time since 1954, and from around 1982 we observe the use of Grattan Óg which is still used alongside Young Grattans as the club name today. Emmet Óg or variations such as Killoe Emmet Óg are still used interchangeably alongside the official Killoe Young Emmets name to this day. This pivot to an Irish version of some club names from the end of 1950’s originates from a preference or policy of specific County Board officials of the day.
