Here are some interesting Kentucky "originating" connections that are not widely known
nor appreciated by historians. The contributions, the religion, and timeline does not
fit neatly with notions about the arrival of a people. People who fought and
died in America's cause.

of Ireland. The lead in this regard was Dr. Douglas Hyde - the first
President of the 26-counties Republic. When he discovered the Gaelic (Irish)

Not wishing to display graphics on these pages initially, I wrote let me describe the symbol that is visible on the right that I'm using to transcribe the infomation that you see below. It shows a circular rope form on whose northern point features within a square box shape, three crowns which are the representation for the province of Munster. The province within which Kerry is located. A box to the southern part of this circular shape has the image of a Gaelic footballer kicking a football. Then to the right in its boxed enclosure is an Irish Hurley player about to make contact with ball (sliother) and hurley stick (caman). To the circle's left is featured an handball player. A map of Kerry (Ciarrai) appears underneath the symbol for Munster along with an Irish Wolfhound, A Harp, a Monastic Tower and a bed of shamrocks above the Gaelic Football player's squared-in area. This beautiful crest design employs the combination of colors; green, white and gold.

The great tradition of Kerry football is renowned, and has long been a source
of pride to all those who hail from the "The Kingdom." Kerry holds the distinction
of having the most All-Ireland Football Championship titles - now, thirty six(36) in all - the most in the history of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). They achieved this
feat against stalwart competitors from the other counties such as the neighboring county
and other powerhouses such as
Kerry's winning ways having them winning two senior All-Ireland Football final in a row. Some tradition to maintain. The Kingdom is back to its winning ways. With your support we hope it will be so for many years to come. We need to keep the tradition alive. Thank youl for your help in making our collective dream come true.
There is no doubt that we have the football skills in Kerry with which to reclaim the championship title again. Kerry minors and under twenty-one (21) teams will provide the talents to keep Kerry Seniors positioned to win again and again. The cost of training, travel, equipment and playing facilities for the team is enormous, and so the Kerry Supporters Club USA was formed to lend financial support for the Kerry Teams in Ireland.
John Riney's inspiration and motivation in the founding of The Kerry Supporters
Club USA is due to his love and memory of his late departed brother, Donie Riney (1944-1994).
John's sentiments as expressed inside the back page of the Journal, reads
Your devotion and dedication, and your relentless promotion of
Gaelic Games. Your support of Sneem & Kerry football has been
my inspiration and motivation in the formation and development
of a Kerry Supporters Club in the USA.
Chairman John Riney (Sneem)
