    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.

    Kerry Seniors Situation ...

    We're in our winning ways once again, the wording on the following appeal will continue to be relevant, that is, support is always welcome and necessary.
    Work is always left to be done for Kerry to realize All Ireland Championship status.

    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 Cork, and Clare, and other powerhouses such as Mayo, Cavan, Galway, Roscommon, Meath, Louth, Dublin, Derry, Donegal, Monaghan , Antrim, Longford, ......

    The Sam Maguire Cup has passed on to Kerry

    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.

    The people of Kerry and those who've missed the excitement of a Kerry presence wish it too.

    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.
