My relative died in 1955. I see the phrase "a noted Gael" in the local newspaper write-up on him. The write-up is headed "Gael's Death". Could someone help me understand what that means?
He was a longstanding member of the local GAA club, on the committee etc. Is it related to that?
I see the phrase turn up in a Google search in other old obits and elsewhere, but I don't quite understand the significance.
