    This is true. More interesting question was when and why we stopped being called 'Hibernians' and started being referred to as 'Hibernian'.
    I might be wrong but I’m sure we were called Hibernians before folding and then came back as Hibernian

    club never folded,they could not field a worthwhile team to fulfil fixtures though but membership fees were paid by Hibernian swimming club until such time that they could field a team worthy of the name.

    Nope. Club was called Hibernian since 1875.

    I thought Hibernia/Hibernian was latin for catholic Irish not land of winter.
    are you getting us confused with game of thrones?
    What do you think hibernate means? Same root as French "hiver" (winter).

    It means to annihilate one's opposition with free-flowing football, does it not, sir?

    Example. Ivan Sproule hibernated the Govanators.
