Report

The Irish American Football Association played its first season in 1986, with a preseason game in Shane Park, Lurgan between Craigavon Cowboys and Belfast Blitzers being the first ever full contact kitted game between two Northern Ireland teams, and possibly the first between two Irish teams. Belfast Blitzers won that match 46-0 and went on to become the first team to ever beat the Dublin Celts, 24-20 in the 2nd Leg of the Capital Cup, and although they lost the Cup on aggregate having lost the 1st leg 46-7 in Dublin, they were happy with the result of being the first team to ever beat the Celts.

Carrickfergus Cougars joined later on in the season, borrowing kit from Craigavon Cowboys to play their first ever full contact kitted game against Belfast Blitzers as part of the Carrick Festival, losing 6-55. Londonderry YMCA saw the last game of the regular season as Coleraine Chieftains lost 0-33 to Craigavon Cowboys. The first season was an ad-hoc scheduled season, and teams arranged their own fixtures.

Belfast Blitzers defeated Dublin Celts 7-0 thanks to a touchdown by Glentoran Soccer player George Neill in the All Ireland Championship Final in Belfast in August, but the season did not end there as another match was organised by sponsors Jack Daniels to be played in Dublin, called the Shamrock Bowl. It was to be invite only and Belfast Blitzers, having won both the League and All Ireland Championship declined to enter as they considered themselves already Champions. Craigavon Cowboys took their place and triumphed 6-2 thanks to a late rushing touchdown by Nigel Trimble.

In all there was a bewildering array of competitions and formats to make up for the small number of teams, with Festivals and Bowl Games coinciding with prominent Festivals around the country.

The Preseason featured the first ever fully kitted game between two Irish teams played in Ireland and the first ever fully kitted game between two Northern Irish teams played in Northern Ireland. It also featured the first leg of the Capitol Cup between the Belfast Blitzers and Dublin Celts, a match-up that would happen four times over the course of the season.

The Festivals included the first of the Big 4th of July American Independence Day matches between Irish teams in Ireland, a highlight of the season ever since, with Dublin Celts again winning against Belfast Blitzers. Belfast Blitzers got revenge however in the Final of the All Ireland Championship, also known as the Irish Cup which Belfast won 7-0.

Belfast Blitzers also won the NIAFA Championship – a league on paper only featuring only the regular season matches played in the IAFA Championship i.e no extra games were played towards it. They won the IAFA Championship also known as the Regular Season title, winning all four games, including the second leg of the Capitol Cup, the first time the Celts were ever beaten.

The History books however record the Craigavon Cowboys as the first Shamrock Bowl Champions, after an amazing turnaround under new American Coach Chuck Ebron, who was brought in halfway through the season. They Won Shamrock Bowl I 6-2 versus Dublin Celts thanks to a late Touchdown by Nigel Trimble.

Report

Round 1 – 9 June 2021 – Tramore Valley Park – Vikings 72 Crusaders 36

Vikings won 72-36 versus Crusaders in the first ever Leeside League Women’s match. Vikings struck early with 2 quick goals by Shannon Stevenson, followed by another by Sarah O’Donovan. The Crusaders battled hard but the “House League” rules of goals only and no behinds meant their lack of accuracy wasted the many shots they sent in. Mary Hurley pulled one back for Crusaders but two goals in quick succession by Maria Quirke, including a monster from 40 yards out, as well as another for Sarah O’Donovan put the Vikings well ahead at half-time. The Crusaders came out fighting in the second half, Annie Walsh covering their entire field and kicking three goals, and along with one from CJ Murphy meant a tally of 30 for the Crusaders, but two more for Shannon Stevenson either side of a Maria Quirke Major, meant the Vikings won 72-36 in the end. The other goals were scored by Maria Quirke (2) and Sarah O’Donovan for Vikings and Mary Hurley for Crusaders. Despite the dominance of the Vikings in the first half, the Crusaders fighting spirit won them the second half, meaning the series was all to play for.

Report

Round 1 – 12 June 2021 – Tramore Valley Park – Leeside Lions 5 Goals (30) Kerry Suns 3 Goals (18)

Kerry Suns made their debut with a match-up versus the previous years’ winners Leeside Lions on Wednesday 12th June in Tramotre Valley Park, Cathal Curran getting their first ever goal in two minutes as they flew out of the traps. Leeside Lions replied quickly with goals by Darren O’Dwyer and Dapper O’Donnell to take a 12-6 lead. There was very little between the teams with defence strong. A lull followed in the second half with little or no exciting action until Cian O’Mahony putting the Lions further in front with a well-worked goal and Conor Nyhan moving up from the backs on his debut to extend the lead to 24-6. The game ended with much excitement as what must have seemed an insurmountable Leeside Lions lead was cut back to one goal with goals by Ian Sull and Steve McCarron before Darren O’Dwyer got his second of the day to finish off the scoring. Final Score 30-18 to Leeside Lions.

Round 1 – 12 June 2021 – Tramore Valley Park – Bombers 5 Goals (30) Saints 6 Goals (36)

A fiercely-contested, evenly-balanced match between Bombers and Saints greeted onlookers in Tramore Valley Park as Steve McCarron scored two goals for the Bombers and Alan Daly’s sizzler on the run which was the Saints first goal. Despite the early pressure Bombers were unable to convert their opportunities into goals and then Brian O’Shea netted twice to put the Saints 18-12 up at half-time. Cian O’Mahony and Cathal Curran swapped goals in the second half before Steve McCarron got his third goal of the match to square the score at 24-24. Harry Hynes put the Bombers in front but just as it looked like they were on top of things Andrew O’Neill scored a monster from way out on the wing against the run of play and then with less than a minute to play Paul Murphy had a set shot to the right of the posts which he made no mistake with, kicking the winning goal. Score at the Final Whistle: Bombers 30 Saints 36.

History

Cavan Comets Baseball Club were established in 2005 and first played in the Baseball Ireland B League in 2010. After three years patience they jumped from a 3-12 record two years running (2011-2012) to a 9-9 record in 2013 and then in 2014 had their best year ever, finishing third in the 9-team league with a winning 10-6 record, making the playoffs for the first time where they were eliminated in the Semi-Final. The 2015 season followed with another playoff run, this time being eliminated in the North Semi-Final.

The following year it was decided to create an Ulster Elite Team to play in the A League featuring the best players from the Cavan Comets, Belfast North Stars and Belfast Buccaneers who wanted to play for this Ulster Red Sox team based in Clones Peace Link Park in Co. Monaghan where Cavan Comets had recently relocated. This had a subsequent impact on the Cavan Comets, coupled with increasing competitiveness in the B League with the addition of new teams Belfast Buccaneers and Ashbourne Giants, and the Comets were out of the playoffs from 2016 to 2020. The Comets were renamed Comets Baseball in 2018 in recognition of their no longer being based in Cavan and still maintained competitiveness, being placed in the B League Upper for 2021.

Home Field: Clones Peace Link, Clones, Co. Monaghan

Report

Greystones Mariners were founded as a Little League Team in 1991 in the small Co. Wicklow town, graduating to the Irish Baseball League (Adult) 10 years later where they posted a winning 12-6 record in their third year in 2004, qualifying for the Playoff Final, and the following year going 8-0 to win the 1st Half Pennant only to finish the Championship 2nd Half 1-5.

They qualified for the playoff each of the next five years (2006-2010) before a slump set in, finishing with losing records from 2011 to 2013. 2014 was another losing year until a remarkable run towards the end of the season saw them climb from bottom to reach the playoffs in fourth place where they proceeded to defeat Belfast North Stars, Dublin Spartans and the Dublin City Hurricanes in the playoffs, sweeping the Hurricanes 2-0 in a shock result. They were finalists each of the next five years before again taking the A League Championship 2 games to 1 versus Ashbourne Giants in 2020.

Report

Galway Softball Club, founded in 1998 and one of the oldest Softball teams in Ireland, has after 23 years, and thanks to generous sponsors, managed to field enough teams to form the first Galway Softball League in history. While there was a Cadet Baseball League back in 1970, this is the very first time since Softball Ireland was founded as the Irish Softball Association in 1989 that such a sanctioned league has taken place in Galway or West of the Shannon River. The four teams are An Púcán Base Invaders; Kenny’s Bookshop Hardbacks; Irishscores Hit Squad and Megadale Aqua Blasters.
