The Kenmare Kestrels were an Irish Quidditch team from the town of Kenmare, County Kerry, in the South of Ireland, that played in the British and Irish Quidditch League. Founded in 1291, they had leprechauns as mascots, and their fans also sometimes played the harp at matches. Their robes were emerald-green with two yellow 'K's back to back on the chest.[1]

Seamus Finnigan was a fan of the Kenmare Kestrels.[2]

The Kestrels were founded.[1]


Early in the year the Kestrels defeated the Montrose Magpies. The Daily Prophet blamed Magpies Chaser Alasdair Maddock for the Magpies loss, because of his use of Muggle football techniques in the match.

In June they played Wimbourne Wasps in Bodmin Moor.

In October they played Wigtown Wanderers.[3]

Behind the scenes
