The County Leitrim Society of Boston was revived in 1994 by a group of Leitrim exiles in the Boston area, in the aftermath of Leitrim's historic Connacht Football Championship victory. The original society had gone out of the existence in the 1950's. We number around 200 members, and consist of natives of County Leitrim, (a county in the North West of Ireland), people of Leitrim extraction and anyone with an interest in Leitrim, or Ireland in general.

Frank O'Rourke was our first President from 1995 -1997, followed by Jim Gallagher 1997- 1999, Theresa Mawn 1999 - 2001, and John McGrath 2001 - 2003.
