Leixlip Town F.C.
Formed in 1991 as Liffeybank FC, the club became known as Leixlip Town F.C. in 1995 upon being accepted into the Kildare League.
The current club crest was also introduced for the club's debut in the Kildare League during the 1995/96 season.
The shield contains three main elements:
(i) A Viking Helmet - taken from the old Liffeybank FC club crest (shown left).
(ii) A Leaping Salmon - representing the town name of Leixlip (which means 'Salmon Leap' in English).
(iii) A Longboat - marking the town's Viking heritage. Its sail is in the club colours of Saffron (orangey-yellow) and Blue. The three 'waves' below the boat represent the Rivers Liffey, Rye Water and Royal Canal which all flow through the town of Leixlip.
Below the crest a scroll (motto) shows the club name and its year of formation.
The crest was designed by Jim Keating (current Club Secretary) and drawn by Ralph Kennedy.
Thanks to Jim Keating, Club Secretary at Leixlip Town FC, for the above crests and information.
