Antrim GAA Visit the Official Club Aontroma Website
As Gaeilge - Nollaig 2006

Dia daoibh a Ghaela óga, agus fáilte romhaibh chuig an chéad eagrán den Saffron Óg as Gaeilge!

Finn the Saffron Óg Football mascot Bhuel Nollaig is upon us again, and Iím sure Daidí na Nollag will be coming soon! I suppose some of you will be asking for a camán, or maybe a sliothar? Iíve asked the big man for a geansaí Aontroma nua, so I can wear it in Páirc Mhic Asmáint.

What did you think of last season? What was your favourite cluiche peile? What was your favourite cluiche iomána. I preferred an cluiche between Corcaigh agus Port Láirge san iomáint. The best cluiche peile was Baile Átha Cliath le Maigh Eo. Can you guess what counties I mean here?

Didnít Antrim do well this year? Bhí Naomh Gall iontach maith, they got to Cluiche Ceannais Peile na gClub. Did anyone see the Antrim hurlers play in Páirc an Chrócaigh? Maybe you were lucky and seen them in Nua Eabharc?! Bhí mionķir Aontroma ar fheabhas! The minor footballers played i gCluiche Ceannais Uladh i bPáirc an Chrócaigh, and the hurlers nearly beat Gaillimh!
