Note: The above Table is a composite table, adding the records of each of the teams for the five tournaments. Pct = Winning Percentage over entire season. Teams are Ranked by 1. Number of Wins. 2. Winning Percentage. 3. Number of Losses.

The 2017-18 Flag Football Ireland Season was intended as a break from the League in order to grow the game – it seems to have worked – from 7 teams in the League in 2017 – there were 19 in 2018, and in 2019 there were 25 teams. Westmeath Minotaurs won three of the Bowl Games, including the last one, the Simon Bowl in Dundalk, triumphing 20-13 over Dublin Bay Raptors.

The Tournaments featured a European Team from a US Air Force Base in Germany – Kaiserslautern Screamin’ Eagles – making it an International Tournament like the Celtic Bowl of 2015. I was also Co-ed – men & women could both play.

Westmeath Minotaurs won the second Flag football tournament of the season in Maynooth, winning both group games and then defeating UCD in the final. After the group stage where each team played twice there was a straight final due to the fading light as the tournament was behind schedule. This left both the Dubliin Bay Raptors and South Dublin Panthers bitterly disappointed as they would be knocked out on points difference despite winning both of their group games like UCD and the Minotaurs.

The Final went into overtime with Westmeath emerging winners with a Niall King touchdown catch. Jack Lynch proved the standout on the day catching 7 TD passes as well as returning an interception for a touchdown.

Westmeath Minotaurs won their second straight Flag Bowl Tournament with a 20-13 victory over the Dublin Bay Raptors in the Final. Held in aid of the Simon Communities Charity for the Homeless, the Minotaurs won all five games, racking up 91 points in three group games behind QB Dermot Corroon
with Jack Lynch and Jason Owens on Offense and Chris Gilbert and David Walsh on Defense also having outstanding days.

The Dublin Bay Raptors won the other group in fine style also, winning all three games, and making sure to rack up the points also after the disappointment of the Maynooth Tournament, winning all three of their games like the Minotaurs.

After despatching the Panthers and Cowboys in the Semi-Finals, the Raptors and Minotaurs would meet undefeated in the Final, in what was a tense game. The Minotaurs would win their second Bowl in a row 20-13 after MVP Conor McGroarty of the Raptors was stopped yards from the line as time ran out.

About LEXFA

LEXFA is an Arena (8v8 Indoor) version of American Football that has become quite popular in Mexico. A team called the Irish, who used the Notre Dame Fighting Irish logo played in a lower division.

About Arena / Indoor Football

This version of American (or Gridiron) Football has become extremely popular in Mexico.

Indoor Football, also known as Arena Football was developed in 1986 as an 8v8 form of Indoor American Football. After an initial few seasons where the game was developed with a 4 team league, a full seasons League with eventually over a dozen teams was developed in the 1990 which was considered by the Wall Street Journal to be a fifth major.

The Arena Football League over-expanded in the 2000s with a Minor League, and its importance (and number of teams) waned since it first experienced financial difficulties  in 2009, and it ceased operations after the 2019 season due to the legacy debt incurred.

There is now, however, Indoor Football Leagues all over America, all of which would now be considered Minor League or Semi-Pro (AAA, AA, or even A) as well as two leagues in Mexico, one of which has 50 teams.

Indoor Football is played on a 50-yard field with two 8-yard endzones, and teams have 5 downs (attempts) to reach the endzone or the ball is turned over. 3 of those downs must be passing plays, making Indoor Football highly explosive and high scoring.

The main difference between Arena Football & Indoor Football is the rebound nets either side of the goalposts in Arena Football, which is the only part of the original patent given to the Arena Football League in 1989, that a subsequent ruling in 1998 ruled was copyright, the rest being Football already in other leagues.

Report

In the early days of American Football in Ireland, before pads and helmets, pick-up games were organised in University College Dublin, Marlay Park (Rathfarnham) and St. Paul’s Park, Raheny. Dublin Celts became the first team in Ireland to become fully kitted in 1985, and while not playing International matches against Wirral Wolves and Newcastle senators from England, played matches among their own members in Raheny. One such match, just after New Years Day in 1986, featuring Irish Press reporter Sean Mannion, ended one Touchdown each.

Season Report

The Erris (Mayo) Rams who split their home games between Drum, Belmullet and Galway-Mayo IT in Castlebar, Co. Mayo finished their inaugural season in the Irish American Football Association DV8 Development League with two wins and six losses. Both wins came against the Midlands Soldiers, based in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, including their home opener which they won 47-0.

The Rams were founded by Chicago-native Michael Kelly, who returned to his roots in Co. Mayo, with his son Andrew, who had played High School in Chicago and missed it in Mayo. Andrew played Quarterback and was backed-up by fellow American-born players, Billy Halloran, from Long Island, New York, who had married an Irish girl from Co. Mayo, 16-year-old Las Vegas-born Chris Cooper who had played High School Football in Oklahoma, and Player-Coach Brian Wilson, who played High School in Washington State on the West Coast of America.

Along with these experienced players in the 8-a-side team were a host of new recruits to the game, as well as Ballinrobe Rugby Player James McTigue, and Canadian Jean-Francois Brussard, who had played Canadian Football (a close relative of American Football) in Canada.

Report

Dublin Lightning caused a shock in Shamrock Bowl XI in 1996 triumphing 26-8 against three-times Champions Dublin Tornadoes in the Final Game. The strategy all game was for the defense, led by Tom Walls, to shut down the Tornadoes offense led by Brian Sutton and Brian Dennehy, and apart from a brief period in the first half it worked. The Lightning had knocked out the Carrickfergus Knights 7-0 in the Semi-Finals.

Report

Limekiln of Dublin won a highly competitive Senior Women’s All-Ireland Rounders Championship in 2005, triumphing in the Final over Carlow’s Bagenalstown. The team from Tymon Park in Tallaght had received a bye into the All-Ireland Playoffs with Bagenalstown contesting the other Leinster place with Ballon, also from Carlow. The Ulster Championship saw two close games involving Kildress from Tyrone which were decided by a single run, but it was to be Derry’s Desertmartin and Cavan’s Erne Eagles who made it through to the All-Ireland Playoffs. The fourth team in the Ulster round-robin group was Ni Mhichil from Derry.

About Rounders

Rounders is an Irish and British version of Softball and Baseball, and thought to be the ancestor of both. It was first codified in Ireland as part of the Original GAA Charter of 1884, but not organised until 1958. It is a Bat and Ball (also known as Safe Haven) sport whereby the batter attempts to hit a ball thrown at him or her by a pitcher or bowler and then attempts to run around the bases back home.
