Report

________________________________________________________

Irish Lacrosse dates back to the 19th Century when the first leagues were played, with teams mostly in the Belfast area. It died out around the First World War and Michael Kennedy writing in the History of Irish Lacrosse has speculated it may have been due to the number of players called up to serve in the Army and also possibly due to the rise of the GAA and Irish Nationalism – Lacrosse would have drawn most of its players from the Protestant Upper Class.

From 1930-1970 an Irish Ladies Lacrosse Association played international fixtures with England, Scotland and Wales and ran a School Challenge competition.

The third phase of Irish Lacrosse began after the millennium, with interest sparked by a certain American Comedy Film.

The Irish Lacrosse League started in 2009-10, with UCD the first winners, and repeating the feat in 2010-11. Dublin Bay Prawns won the league in 2011-12, before UCD Unicorns won back the title in 2012-13.

From 2015 the league would become a spring league with the Newtownards Cup played as a pre-season Cup over Autumn in order to facilitate the entry of newer players. Dublin Bay Prawns would win the title that year and Dublin Lacrosse Club would finally get their hands on the title in 2016.

The first chapter in the re-emergence of Lacrosse in Ireland ends there as the two non-University teams merged for the 2017 season and in 2018 became Railway Union Lacrosse Club as they played in the famous Hockey and Cricket grounds in Sandymount.
