Report

The Australian Rules Football League of Ireland was founded in 2001, and by 2011 the two geographical divisions were merged into one Premiership.

Leeside Lions won the 2011 Premiership title and South Dublin Swans the Grand Final. The 2012 season belonged to the Belfast Redbacks who won both the Premiership and Grand Final, defeating Galway Magpies 74-48. They would again win the Premiership in 2013, however, would fall short 76-56 to the South Dublin Swans in the Grand Final.

Belfast Redbacks would again win the 2015 Premiership, losing only 1 of 8 matches. The 2016 season would see both titles go south as the Leeside Lions took the Premiership and defeated Belfast Redbacks convincingly in the Grand Final 104-52. They would repeat the feat in the 2017 season, beating South Dublin Swans 85-41 in the Grand Final to add to their second Premiership in a row.
