Dublin Dragons | Irish 8-a-side American Football Team 2008-2009

Dublin Dragons Logo

IAFL 8-a-side Senior Team 2002-2003; 2008-2009

Home Ground: Lucan Community College

Colours: Burgundy & Gold

History: One of the original teams in the reformed IAFL in 2001, having their roots in the Dublin Gladiators Flag Football Team, the Dragons always struggled in the shadows of their illustrious neighbours, the Dublin Rebels.

They dropped down to the 8-a-side Division 1 in 2002-03 and again the DV8 Development League in 2008 in order to rebuild, returning to full 11-man IAFL in 2004 & 2010.

 They were plagued throughout their history by internal divisions, and in 2015 reformed as the South Dublin Panthers.

About:

Ball Hockey is a version of Ice Hockey played on a hard surface with a ball and runners rather than puck or skates.

Report:

Ireland’s Women finished a respectable 3rd, winning a Bronze Medal in the World Championships in Pittsburgh 2015. They won 3 of their four Group Stage matches, including a shock victory over hosts USA, and also gaining wins over Ice Hockey powers Slovakia and Czech Republic.

They were unable to repeat their victory over USA in the Semi-Finals, however, and had to settle for Bronze after beating Slovakia for third place, in what was a great achievement for the Irish women.
