History making Pictures

Stephen O'Shea - Founder, President

President Stephen O'Shea is the first president of Saint Brendan's Gaelic Fooball Club, a club he helped found. Others who contributed are duly credited within Saint Brendan's web pages. Stephen has been heavily involved in Gaelic activities for years. His work on behalf of fellow Kerrymen is well appreciated in New York circles. Football is a passion for Kerrymen, especially since their County Kerry holds more All Ireland distinctions than any other county in Ireland. Now, Hurling is another matter :)
