Looks like his boxing record. Do you know when/where he died, there could be a newspaper report on his life, he took part in the Olympics so could have been a bit of a celeb.

Brenda.....It may be better if you could give some more backround /details that you know about GK.

Where did you know get his year of birth...?

There are a number of George Kelly's who could be him on the 1911 census and dozens buried in Glasnevin..
Ideally we could do with his biography but there doesnt appear to be one..!

Professional Career...

George Kelly boxed between 1929 and 1938.... 84 "professional" contests
Dont know if the following was him having one comeback last fight ....seems unlikely but who knows....

George Kelly boxed between 1947 and 1947 1 professional contest

George woud have had an Amateur Boxing Career prior to turning Professional and that would have been pre 1929.....

Definately need to delve into the Archives for that info.

Brenda Report 4 Sep 2013 22:54

No other info on him im afraid, got his birth date, which we had an idea of from the 1911 census, which we found , and think might be him, With the parents as Patrick age 41 and Catherine age 36 Kelly . we know he had a brother John who is also on this census with George aged 3
We have him in " The Southern EX-Boxer magazine " Dated Nov 1986
Shows him in Dublin 1937
Thanks kindly for everyone that is offering the great help Brenda
