Historic Antrim clubs

(Oldest Posts First)

This one is for GAA history buffs/bores.

If you look at old newspapers (like 1930s or 1940s), there are a huge number of Antrim clubs (particularly Belfast) that are now defunct, like McCartneys, Stephens, Parnells, Kevin Barry's, O'Connells etc. Here's the story of one of then Joe McKelvey GAC from the 1920s and 1930s: https://treasonfelony.wordpress.com/2015/05/03/the-story-of-joe-mckelveys-gaa-club/
