Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Is cluxton an English name? Iv never heard that name before stevo.

Hi it's some achievement getting to 100 games but like I said earlier on 95% of those were played at home."
Probably is an English name and all! Much like his buddy in corner back Johnny Cooper with another Sasanach name!

Typical Dubs!

Cluxton didn't swim

He walked.

Cluxton was a Scottish name associated with Scots Covenanters (Presbyterians - Clugston) who settled in Ulster at the plantation. Cluxton's particular lot originated in Kildare in 18th century. But sure what does it matter! All names have a history

I'll just leave this here to educate the ignorant/xenophobic amongst our numbers

Clifford

Name Meaning. English: habitational name from any of various places called Clifford, for example in Devon, Gloucestershire, West Yorkshire, and in particular Herefordshire. The place name is derived from Old English clif 'slope' + ford 'ford'.

Also..

Young = definitely English linked

Savage = definitely English linked

My sister recently sent a sample of our family DNA to that ancestry site. We had Nordic, Norman, Anglo-Saxon blood links on top of the obvious Irish ones.

It's what happens over millennia of war fare and invasion.

Not a drop of Celtic blood in our line. Scandinavian with a little Norman thrown in!

My ancestor sailed up the Liffey in a longboat in the 9th Century and never left.

I suppose the Scandinavians had to get rid of riff raff.

Not to mention all the 'Fitz' boys down through the years from England and Walsh's coming from Wales too!

Disgrace that any of them were even allowed to play Gaelic Football!

Huh.. explains something

An English named man that reigned over his mighty kingdom and considered GAA Royalty by his loyal subjects.

It's no wonder he had such an exuberantly expensive state dinner in his honor.
