Report

_______________________________________________________________________________

Approximately once every four years the Irish National Baseball Team undertakes a tour of North America.

In 2001 the team visited New England, playing a match in Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, going 4-4 including an Ireland Youth Team match, the adukts finishing with a 3-4 Record.[9]

The next trip was to Southern California in 2005, where the team won three of their nine matches, defeating MVP 10-5, MBSL 8-7 and Club California 9-3 [10] .

For the trips in 2010 and 2012 it was back to the North East where they finished with an even 2-2 record in their trip to Rhode Island in 2010, defeating the Good Knights of East Providence 6-5 and Providence Sports Leadership 12-2[1][11].

They had one win out of five in the New York trip two years later, defeating Rockland Astros 15-8 [4].

In 2017 the team embarked on a tour of Ontario in Canada, winning three games out of five, their first winning record for a trip.[5][6][7][8]

Report

Following a brief Ice Hockey League in Ireland in the 1990s, another Irish Ice Hockey League started up in 2007, lasting until 2010 when the Dundalk Ice Bowl closed due to the economic crisis in Ireland at the time.

 

Dundalk Bulls would win the first two titles in 2007-08 and 2008-09, and then the Charlestown Chiefs, based in West Dublin, would win a curtailed 2009-10 season.

The League would then fold due to lack of available ice, until 2015 when the Dundonald Ice Bowl became available for Ice Hockey, leading to a new Cross-Border Cup.

Report

The Irish Flag Football League was established in 1991 by members of the Dublin Tornadoes as a way of growing the game and ran until 2000, playing games at Marlay Park, Fairview Park and Phoenix Park [1][2]. It played a 7-a-side version as opposed to the international standard 5-a-side version.[5]

The Dublin Tornadoes Flag team won the title for first two years, and then the Marlay Martyrs won in 1993-1994 and 1994-95 [3] .The Drimnagh Cycos won the fifth edition, before the Dublin Crows won in 1997. The Dublin Pirates would then win the last three titles from 1997-2000 [6][7]

1995-96 Final

Marlay Hellfire 6 Drimnagh Cycos 12 – Marlay Hellfire went into the Final as huge favourites after an undefeated 12-game season, and having only been beaten once in the Irish League over the previous two-and-a-half-years, however, the Drimnagh Cycos, after an 8-3 season, surprised them in a 12-6 victory. Every player played his part according to Drimnagh spokesman Liam Farrell. [2]

1996-97 Final

Drimnagh Cycos 23 Dublin Crows 25 – With bad weather conditions prevailing, the Dublin Crows built up a 25-0 half-time lead. With the change of ends in the second-half the Drimnagh Cycos came back into the match, however, the Crows held on for the win as time ran out, thanks to a tactical offense. [7]

1997-98 Final

Drimnagh Cycos 12 Dublin Pirates 18- Dublin Pirates won an encounter which was close the entire match. [7]

1998-99 Final

Dublin Pirates 14 Greystones Rebels 12 – The Dublin Pirates won a closely fought final.[8]

About

The Irish Flag Football League was set up in the Winter of 1991 by members of the Dublin Tornadoes American Football Team as a way of growing the game [3].

There was both a Winter League and Summer League, with teams based in Dublin & Wicklow.

It was administered by the Irish Council of American Football, which was the regional body for the Republic of Ireland, within the American Football Association of Ireland.

It disbanded after the 1999-2000 season, and was replaced by the Irish American Football Assovciation’s Flag Football programme, which featured Challenge games over the whole island. [see https://eirball.ie/2019/03/11/irish-american-football-association-flag-football-challenge-games-2001-02/ ]

Report

The Ballymena Wolfhounds made a round-trip of 800 miles to Yorkshire to play their only match of the season as they had no opposition in Ireland at this level. [1]

The Wildcats were bigger and more numeerous than the Wolfhounds, but the Irish lads held their own in the first quarter, with the score remaining 0-0 until mid-way through the second quarter when second string fullback Marty McConville broke free on a 48 yard run to open the scoring. The Extra point kick failed. [1]

The scoring didn’t end there for the first half as the Doncaster lads hit back with a 17 yard passing TD, but with one minute still on the clock in the first half the Wolfhounds executed a reverese to perfection, with lead blocks from Paul Martin and Brian Elliott helping Enda Casey on his way to a 66 yard rushing touchdown. The Wolfhounds incresed the lead to 14-6 when the extra-pont attempt was caught by Paul Martin from QB Paul Haddock. A further touchdown for the Wolfhounds was called back due to a clipping penalty, so the score remained 14-6 at half-time. [1]

The entire second half was one of the most dominating displays by a Wolfhounds team in its ten year history as the held the Wildcats to negative yardage. [1]

There was no scoring in the third quarter as both teams had touchdowns called back for penalties. [1]

Despite their tiredness they still managed to put more points on the board. Lineman Frank Casey tackled the Doncaster running-back in the endzone for a safety making it 16-6, and then Paul Haddock scored on a 28 yard QB keeper to finish off the scoring. [1]

The game ended 22-6 to Ballymena and was a fair reflection of their dominance. Marty McConville was named MVP for his magnificent performance on both sides of the ball. Rookie Paul Murphy desreves a Special Mention for Rushing 78 yards in his debut. [1]

About

Jugger is like a cross between American Football and Medieval Combat. It is a team Sport where the objective is to get a skull from the middle of the field into a zone at the opposing teams end. There are five players on each team, four of whom are paired off fightning each other with padded weapons such as swords.

When a player is ‘killed’ in these fights he has to kneel down and is out of the game for that particular round. The Fifth person is the Qwick. His job is to get the skull from the middle of the field past the opposing Qwick into a zone at their opponents endzone. He can only advance the skull once the other teams fighters are all dead. The team which scores the most skull touchdowns is the winner.
