Kevin Broadmoor, along with his brother, Karl was a Beater for the Falmouth Falcons from 1958 to 1969. Kevin and Karl earned no less than fourteen suspensions for their violent play and constant rule-breaking.


"Kevin" is an anglicised form of the Irish name Caoimhín, derived from the older Irish Cóemgein, composed of the Old Irish elements cóem "kind, gentle, handsome" and gein "birth". Saint Caoimhín established a monastery in Glendalough, Ireland in the 6th century and is the patron saint of Dublin. It became popular in the English-speaking world outside of Ireland in the 20th century.
