  • My husband's 1st cousin 1 x removed was Matt Goff (1901-1956).  He was a famous Leixlip Gaelic footballer.  He is buried in Confey Cemetery. He played full back on the famous Kildare teams of the mid 1920's and 1930's.  He won the Leinster and All Irelands in 1927 and 1928.  The team won the Sam Maquire Trophy in 1928.  He has a bridge named after him to commemorate his contribution to Gaelic football.  This is the Matt Goff Bridge on the Interchange Bridge in Leixlip. The plaque on the bridge was unveiled by Tom Malone who we met on a trip to Ireland. He was born Matt Gough but the name was mis-spelt when he signed for Gaelic football.  His father Thomas Gough was my husband's great uncle.
