Replying To arcadia:  "From what I have been able to ascertain...

On Robert Emmet - 15 GAA clubs use 'Emmets' in their name.
On Patrick Sarsfields - 13 GAA clubs use Sarsfields in their name.

Any others are 10 or below in terms of usage stats.
These are stats for GAA clubs in Ireland only (not overseas clubs).

Note: There are additional 3 clubs who use 'Emmetts' in their name as opposed to Emmets, which are not counted in above stat. I don't know why there are 'Emmetts' as well as 'Emmets' and whether they are meant to be the same (Anyone from Lisnaskea, Brocagh or Eskra might be able to shed light there)."
Thanks.

The GAA team in Downpatrick, County Down is named RGU Downpatrick. The RGU stands for Russell Gaelic Union. The club is named after Thomas Russell who was executed in Downpatrick Gaol for his part in the 1803 rebellion. He was born in Dromahane, County Cork in 1767.

Yeah I was just listing the ones in Ireland. There are a range of other Shamrocks and Harps if you extend globally.

Must be a load of Mitchels about the place but considering Johns stance on slavery I can't see many more clubs naming themselves after him!

There are many more than that. Fr Caseys (Abbeyfeale), Fr Sheehys (Clogheen, Fr O'Neills (Cork) and Fr Murphys (London), come to mind as well as Gerald Griffins and Staker Wallaces, of 1798 fame, both in Limerick. In Galway, Tommie Larkins has the unusual distinction of being named after two unrelated men of the same name. The first Tommie Larkin was a native of the Parish, who died in prison, where he was incarcerated for his involvement in the Land War and a Priest who did Trojan work for the club in the 1930s. Geraldine O' Hanrahans in Wexford, Liam Mellows in Galway and Michel Glaveys in Roscommon also come to mind. I am sure there sure many more.
