The County Leitrim Society of Boston was refounded in 1994 by a group of Leitrim exiles in the Boston area. The original society had gone out of the existance in the 1950's. We number between 100 and  200 members, and consist of Leitrim natives, people of Leitrim extraction and anyone with an interest in Co Leitrim, or Ireland in general. We held our first Spring Dance in the AOH hall in Watertown in April 1995, and have held a Spring Dance every year since. We also hold an annual Christmas party.  Other activities have included trips to the Catskills Mountains in New York, hosting a stand at the Irish Cultural Festival at Stonehill College in Easton, MA each summer, and hosting an annual golf tournament at Newton Golf course.

We held our annual Christmas Party at the Emerald Isle in Dorchester, on December 11th, 1998. Over 100 people attended and it was a big success.
