You have Nemo Rangers, Laune Rangers.

Uncommonly successful name though, 3 sorts of Rangers have won 14 AI clubs,  whereas 4 sorts of Saints have only won 8, a few went to 2 teams named after Bishops. Those named after the national liberators haven't done so well, Wolfe Tone gets a look in but no sign of Pearse.

Shamrocks might be name for team.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

If you think it's going to be the only club in the city then just name it after the city. There's plenty of clubs in Ireland that are named just after their town or townland.

I agree with Mayo on the religious/political thing.  It also looks very out of place in America when you name a club after a person. If you want to set up a club that attracts American-born players (which you should do if you want it to have a sustainable future) then you're going to have to pick a name that the American public can relate to.  And you can still do it with an Irish slant on things, like the San Francisco Celts, Pittsburgh Celtics, or Chicago Patriots.  I'd take your cues from American sports, not clubs based in Ireland.

Stew, you are going to name them the Green Bay Pearse Og, right?

Call them Rangers, they'd be more likely to win something.

Nah, funnily enough we are going to call then the Green Bay Harps if we go ahead.

Thanks to all with the help and advice, it is appreciated.

Dawg, you know me too well, you sir are 100% correct, the skips are even going to be the same as The Harps Jerseys.

Harps, nice choice.
Time to take a more chill-pill approach to life.

Not too many clubs by that name. Vancouver Harps, Fog City Harps (San Francisco), that's about all I can think of on the continent. Not a bad choice.

Aye, the reason is simple, I played for Armagh Harps for a while back in the day and most of my mates played with them as well, a no brainer name wise, maddog knew this and had me pegged from the start and even called the color scheme.  :)

The hard work is yet to be done but things are coming together, albeit slowly.

Sounds good to me Gab, good luck to ye all, I have 25 premier level players raring to go and we practice 30 minutes a week after the sawker is done, they love it altogether.
