Walfrid was born of John Kerins and Elizabeth Flynn in Ballymote, a village in south County Sligo in north west Ireland. His ancestors, the Ó Céirín (later anglicised as “Kerins”), were anciently Gaelic lords of Ciarraige Locha na nÁirne, with a long history in Mayo.

He studied teaching and in 1864 joined The Marist Brothers Teaching Order. He moved to Scotland in the 1870s and taught at St. Marys School and the Sacred Heart School where he was appointed headmaster in 1874. He also helped found St. Joseph’s College, Dumfries.

 

In 1888, he founded The Celtic Football Club as a means of raising funds for the poor and deprived in the east end ofGlasgow. In 1893 Walfrid was sent by his religious order to London’s East End. Here he continued his work, organizing football matches for and showing great kindness to the barefoot children in the districts of Bethnal Green and Bow. The charity established by Walfrid was named The Poor Children’s Dinner Table.

He died on 17 April 1915, leaving a surviving brother, Bernard, in Cloghboley, County Sligo. Walfrid is buried in the Mount St. Michael Cemetery in Dumfries.
