2015 was a year of high expectations for the Kerry Football Club and with a bit of luck it could have been so different as the record speaks for itself. In the first game of the Senior Championship Kerry lost to Aidan McAnespies by  4-10 to 3-15 with McAnespies scoring two very late points after Kerry had a 9 point lead. They lost their second game to the Wolfe Tones by just one point – 4-8 to 2-15 and in their third game they drew with the Shannon Blues 4-9 to 2-15. In 2016 the Kerry Football Club is hoping that lady luck will shine her light on the green and gold in Boston. April 30th is the closing date for home based selection players and with a limited number of selections available it is important to get in touch with the club officers. The Kerry Club is highly respected in Boston. It has been around since 1886 and over that period of time  so many of the Kingdom’s finest footballers have played for Kerry in Boston and we hope that this tradition will continue for many more years to come.

Neasden Gaels

The Neasden Gaels from London will be taking a flight across the pond to Boston and during their stay in the area will play a challenge against the Connemara Gaels on Saturday, March 19.  The Gaels from London and Boston have met several years ago in a challenge.  A good weekend is in store.
