The men of '69

16 September 2019

50 years ago, on September 14th 1969. Antrim’s most successful team beat Roscommon in the All Ireland U21 Football Championship Final in Croke Park.

Now, half a century on. We would like to highlight and congratulate our two representatives, Sean Maguire & Dessie McAteer, from that Official Antrim GAA U21 team. 

We are very honoured and proud as a club to have been represented on the National stage by both these men. Congratulations to both Sean, Dessie, their families and the entire club!

When they were Kings...
