GAA clubs named after Republican figures
« on: October 05, 2016, 05:35:47 PM »
I'm interested in collating how many clubs in Ireland are named after Republican figures, particularly those from the 1916 and 1798 rebellions. Feel free to add your own county.

Armagh folk may want to correct me, or add more...

PATRICK PEARSE
Annaghmore

SEAN McDERMOTT
Maghery

ROBERT EMMET
Clonmore
Dorsey

MICHAEL DWYER
Keady

WOLFE TONE
Derrymacash

O'DONOVAN ROSSA
Mullabrack

THE O'RAHILLY
Collegeland

SEAN SOUTH
Clady

Ones I can think of in Galway

Sarsfields New Inn. Aughrim is in the parish I think
Pearses  Gurteen
Liam Mellowes Galway
Tommie Larkins dunno

Mayo has Davitts. I think he was the greatest of all the revolutionaries.
Fantastic name for a club.

Kiltormer is south of the county. Aughrim is between Loughrea and Ballinasloe
10km apart according to Google map. Misinformed previously obviously.
Sarsfields used be referred to Bullaun - New Inn. Just curious what club Aughrim aligned to.

Had thought Davitt was more of a political figure with the Land League.
