The first event we held was a Spring Dance in the AOH Hall in Watertown
in April 1995, and we have held a Spring Dance every year since.
We also hold an annual Christmas party, Golf Tournament, and ski
trip. Other activities have included trips to the Catskill Mountains
in New York, The Leitrim - New York Football game in May 2003, and
whitewater rafting expeditions. Check out our photos
page for a review of these activities.
Proceeds from our events got to charities and worthy causes. Over
the years we have donated thousands of dollars, to numerous charitable
organizations and worthy causes in Leitrim and Boston.
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.
