Delaney is a great Kilkenny name.

Reynolds is a very common Leitrim name.

I'm told one or two Reillys have played for Cavan, but I couldn't be sure.

Not surnames, but Kerry seems to be full of Tim's and Mike's. Does any other county use Mike? As opposed to Mick or Mickey?

Another interesting thing about first names is how different Patrick is across the country . Patsy up north. Podge in Clare. Pat in Connacht. Paddy up north I think. Paidi in Kerry.   Padraig in Munster. Paraic in Connacht. Pa in Munster, especially Limerick Kerry and Cork

League of Ireland soccer teams have to include a player called Byrne. Fact.

Donegal usually have a Gallagher somewhere in there in the first 15.

Almost always a Boyle or a Doherty on the panel too.

Sligo - O'Hara
Fermanagh- Corrigan
Can't think of any O'Hara other than himself who has ever played for Sligo. Lazy nonsense.
