    Sounds like it might be connected to Conradh na Gaeilge rather than GAA,

    Not C na G "conradh/connrad" means league in Irish, its a national hurling league medal

    National hurling league is called An sraith iomána. Conradh na Gaeilge means Gaelic League.

    So jury is still out :-)

    Telling ye man, . Conradh na Gael=League of gaels

    I'll bet the GAA were calling the league "conradh" back in the day

    Well, Cork did win the league in 1972 so almost prepared to concede!


    Are letters faded? Although I think Cocaí was or is one version of Irish spelling of Cork.
