The Legend of Kegs Softball

Partially based on a true story, forgotten over a 30-year period.

The genesis of the Kegs dates back to Pat Burke’s 21st birthday in 1990, where a game of softball was played in his front garden in Cahir, with a Wavin pipe and a tennis ball.

Tommy Kinsella then produced some Budweiser bats and gloves. Games on Thursday evenings at UCD commenced, leading to the first college team.

The group evolved, and after a few too many pints in the Burlington hotel, decided to enter the league in 1994, thus creating the first league-official softball team. The name was chosen in founding member Niall Ennis’s kitchen, after a not-so-tough choice between ‘The Babes’ and ‘The Kegs’ – and so Kegs Softball has blossomed and grown ever since!
