Kilbane Black Tee

This tee is our homage to Johnny Kilbane -

John Patrick "Johnny" Kilbane (April 9, 1889 – May 31, 1957) was a featherweight boxer in the early part of the 20th century. He held the World Featherweight title from 1912 to 1923.

He was born in 1889 in ‘The Angle’, a teeming Westside emigrant stronghold which was tough and impoverished, to an Achill father and Cleveland-Achill mother, Mary Gallagher. 

In 1922 Kilbane visited Achill island in Co. Mayo where he shed a tear to see the birthplace of his father.
