At the height of its handball fame, the Boot Inn in IAHU times, was owned by the Welden Family. It was home to the 1st leg of the match between J.J. Kelly V. Tommy Leahy to decise the All-Ireland championship. Kelly was the reigning champion and won the 1st leg but loss to Leahy overall. The 2nd leg was in the home alley of Leahy in Ballymore Eustace.
