Report

The LSFL Division 1 was won by a different club nearly every year between 1980-81 and 1987-88, with only Bluebell United winning a second time (81-82 & 83-84). Pegasus won the title in 1980-81 and Hammond Lane in 1982-83. St. Mary’s Athlone took the trophy out of Dublin in 1984-85, and Glebe North, TEK United and St. James’s Gate won it the following three years.

The League was re-organised for the 1988-89 season, with Divisions 1 & 1A replaced by the Senior Division and Division 1 respectively.
