There's bound to be plenty up and down the country where a town is split by a river or whatever and is in two counties. Ballyleague/Lanesboro is essentially the same town split by the Shannon but it's called Ballyleague in Roscommon and Lanesboro in Longford, the two sides don't really mix and the rivalry is there alright, both sides considering the other weird. St Faithleachs the Gaelic club on the Ros side would have a definite superiority complex over their neighbours Rathcline over the bridge and the Larrys wouldn't be too fond of that.

On Athlone , there's actually a reasonable distance between the likes of Athlone GAA, Garrycastle, Clann and Brigids. Obviously the two town teams are closer like any urban sides would be but the two Ros teams have their own definite area and are both a nice ten minute spin out of town.
