From 1987 to 1998 Irish Teams based in Dundonald Ice Bowl, Castlereagh competed in various iterations of a Scottish League. Before the advent of the Belfast Giants and the Odyssey Arena there was only the Ice Bowl in Dundonald for Irish Ice Hockey and so teams had to travel overseas to Scotland to play competitively.

In 1987-88 the Dundonald Redwings finished a commendable third place in the league and the following year a new team the Castlereagh Flames finished fourth. both teams were knocked out of the Playoff League Cup in the Semi-Final stage. In 1989-90 the Castlereagh Flames finished second, the best performance by an Irish team so far, but were unable to field a team in the League Cup Playoffs. In 1990-91 the Flames finished third, and in 1991-92 fourth.

There then followed a lull in Irish involvement in Scottish Ice Hockey until the Castlereagh Knights entered the Northern Premier League in 1996-97.
