UCD won the first IAFL 1 Bowl 40-0 over Cork Admirals a year after both clubs were controversially relegated from the Shamrock Bowl Conference for forfeiting fixtures. Waterford Wolves beat Cork the following year – again after being relegated from the SBC.
In 2016 the Admirals won the Bowl at the third attempt – and promotion back to the SBC – beating The Belfast Trojans Seconds Team 38-7. Louth Mavericks made it a second win for the Regions with victory over Craigavon Cowboys in 2017. The Cowboys lost the following year to West Dublin Rhinos, but finally won the title and promotion back to the SBC with a narrow 28-27 win over Westmeath Minotaurs in 2019.
In all six different teams have each won the 1 Bowl once.
