Kieran McErlain


Greetings to you all, born and bred a kiwi, my Irish Heritage goes back to my grandparents on my father’s side coming out to New Zealand in the 1920’s and on my mother’s side back in the 1890’s. Family line trace back to County Antrim and County Kerry, both of which I visited back on the 1987 when I competed at the World Championships in Galway.

I have had an involvement with the society from a very early age and the family remain strong members of the society, my interests include dancing, music and sports, having danced for many years and played both Gaelic football and hurling a number of years ago. I have been on the executive for the last 5 years and took the role of President on in 2017, looking forward to building stronger links with all the Irish in Christchurch.
