Home Farm FC
The History of Home Farm FC
Home Farm Football Club was founded in the Drumcondra/Whitehall area of North Dublin in 1928. It had a unique beginning. In the mid 1920's, Leo Fitzmaurice was concerned about the lack of recreational facilities in the locality. His public spirit inspired him to organise a streets soccer league for youngsters who lived in the district - Home Farm Rd., Drumcondra Rd., Richmond Rd., Hollybank Rd. and Ormonde Rd. Leo Fitzmaurice was a brother of the legendary Irish pioneer Trans-Atlantic flyer, Colonel James Fitzmaurice. In setting his streets league tournament to provide a modest recreational outlet for the young people of the district, I feel sure that Leo had no conception that two of the teams involved would merge and develop over the years into one of Ireland's leading Schoolboy Football Clubs. Nor can he have any idea of the major influence the club would have on Iris
