The Kearny Irish is an American soccer club based in Kearny, New Jersey that was an inaugural member of the reformed American Soccer League. The club was named the Kearny Celtic beginning with the 1942/43 season.
In 1944 the club won the Lewis Cup.
After a more than 35-year hiatus the Kearny Irish American Football Club is back. Despite being dormant since the mid-1970s the team has reawakened as a highly competitive team in New Jersey, playing in the North Jersey Soccer League.
Many of the club’s current players grew up playing for Thistle FC, Kearny High School, and of course, the playgrounds and schoolyards around Kearny. Wearing the hoops and playing for the Irish, the team is looking to restore the former glory that the club once enjoyed.
