Recap

The 1987 season was the fourth season of organised American Football Leagues in Britain other than those for US Air Force and Army teams stationed on the island. The Budweiser League’s top Division – the National Division – was contested by 20 teams in four Conferences of five teams – Northern, Western, Eastern and Southern – and the London Ravens (Britain’s first American Football Club, formed in 1983) again emerged the top team, winning their third Bowl game in as many years, 43-20 versus Manchester Allstars [1-4].

Two Irish-named Quarterbacks starred for Birmingham Bulls (Trevor Carthy) and Fylde Falcons (Pat Brennan) while Mike Delaney starred for London Ravens at wide receiver. [References: 6]

After the season, the lowest-ranked team in each Conference was relegated, along with Cardiff Tigers and Bournemouth Bobcats and Leeds Cougars, the Premier Bowl contestants promoted to the National Division. With CMK Bucks (Coventry-Milton Keynes) splitting up again after their merger and also taking part in the Premier Division, and Slough Silverbacks disbanding it left a 15-team National Division for 1988, divided into three Conferences: North, Central and South.

About the BAFA Budweiser League National Division

The British American Football Association united 100+ teams under the BAFA umbrella for 1987 as the BAFL (British American Football League) ceased to exist with the top three divisions in a league simply called the Budweiser League for sponsorship reasons. The Top division was called the National Division, the second level, the Premier Division and the third level Division One. Below these three divisions was the UKAFA (United Kingdom American Football Association) as a fourth level and then regional leagues making up a fifth level (Thistle League in Scotland, NWWCAFL – North West and Welsh Counties American Football League, BNGL – British National Gridiron League – in the North and Capital League in the South East).

Recap

With a squad of about 20-30 players Bray’s East Coast Comets in Co. Wicklow were due to meet a team from Portmarnock in March 1986 in an early game of American Football, which would probably have been a pre-pads version of the game, played with some contact but not Flag Football.

European Theater of Operations (1942-1944), All-American Festival (1983)

The first teams based in Ireland were the European Theater of Operations Football Championship teams of US Army and Navy personnel stationed in Northern Ireland during World War II. The Hale Blue Devils, Yarvard Crimson Tide, Tech Fighting Irish, Army Wolverines and Navy Galloping Gaels played a handful of matches in Larne, Ravenhill and Newry. In 1983 with Britain’s Channel 4 TV station showing the game on our screens for the first time, the Redskins and Yankees – two teams of specially trained Rugby Union players played at the All-American Festival in Banbridge, Co. Down.

American Football Association of Ireland (1987-1999)

With the founding of the Dublin Celts in the Phoenix Park in 1984 the foundations of Irish American Football proper were laid. Following quickly were Coleraine Chieftains, also 1984 but not kitted until 1986, Craigavon Cowboys, Belfast Blitzers, Ballymena Wolfhounds, Carrickfergus Cougars in 1985 and 1986. The Wolfhounds withdrew from the AFAI in 1986 and concentrated solely on Youth Football, becoming fully kitted in 1991. The other five mentioned teams played in the first season of the American Football Association of Ireland in 1986. In 1987 Belfast Spartans, Jordanstown Jaguars, Bangor Buccaneers, Dublin Tornadoes, Belfast Giants, East Side Jets (Castlereagh) joined the league as did Aldergrove Hawks, who only played preseason. The 11 teams was soon whittled down to 8 as Jordanstown and East Side folded during the season and Bangor Buccaneers folded after the season. In 1988, however, the Antrim A26 Bulldogs were born. The Lee Valley Steelers in Cork were also formed that year. Belfast Blitzers dropped out of the league after 1988 and in 1989 Belfast Giants did likewise. 1989, however, saw the birth of the Bray Seahawks and Limerick Patriots. Bray played the one season of friendlies and Limerick never joined the league proper, playing in an 8v8 Mini-League.

1990 saw the birth and death of the Dublin Pirates. In 1991 Coleraine Chieftains and Carrickfergus Cougars merged as the Newtownabbey Warriors. This was to be the pattern for the next decade – one or two teams would fold each year and one replaced them. In 1991 the Junior Kitted League started in Northern Ireland with the Wolfhounds, Brownlow Bandits (a feeder team for the Cowboys), the Belfast Junior Spartans and the Prospect Pumas. Pumas were to become the Carrickfergus Knights senior team in 1994. Before that was to happen, however, the Drogheda Vikings entered the league in 1992, lasting one season, before a splinter group formed the Ardee Falcons in 1993, playing 8v8 Football for one season. That year was the last year of the Celts, Patriots, Falcons and Steelers as the league numbers dwindled. The Cowboys also folded temporarily, replaced by the nearby Lurgan Area Raiders in 1994. In 1995 the Dublin Lightning were formed by former Celts players. 1996 was the last year of the Tornadoes and Spartans. All of the original teams had now disappeared. Portadown Panthers replaced the Raiders in 1996 and were again replaced by the returning Craigavon Cowboys in 1998. The Tornadoes were replacerd by the Dublin Tigers in 1998 who had merged with the Gateway Bulls who were formed in Dublin in 1997. Greystones Rebels also formed around this time but stayed out of the league most season, as did the Dublin Lightning due to disatisfaction with the running of the league. 1998 saw Queen’s University Belfast Broncos play the first of two seasons, and a new team in Belfast, the Lasers played 7v7 Football in 1999.

Irish American Football Association (2001-2019)

By 2000, however, all but three teams had folded: Carrickfergus Cougars, Greystones Rebels and Dublin Lightning, with only one still affiliated to AFAI. Following protracted disputes, eventually leading to a court case, the AFAI was replaced by the IAFA in 2001 and the league started afresh with the Tigers and Rebels merged to become the Dublin Rebels, the Carrickfergus Knights and two entirely new teams: Dublin Dragons, formed from a Flag Football team, and the University of Limerick Vikings. The League expanded rapidly adding the Cork Admirals, Belfast Bulls and a resurrected Craigavon Cowboys by 2003 and the North Dublin Marshals and Dublin City University Saints by 2006. In 2007 the Marshals were replaced by the Tallaght Outlaws who lasted until 2008, the Edenderry Soldiers and the Belfast Trojans, a split from the Belfast Bulls. The Bulls folded after the 2008 season, and that year the introduction of the DV8 Development League saw a boom in team numbers: Both seconds teams, West Dublin Rhinos and Trinity College Dublin Thunderbolts were added that year. In 2009 the Erris (Mayo) Rams (until 2010), Midlands Soldiers (a merger of Edenderry Soldiers and new team Mullingar Archers, which lasted one season) and University College Dublin Sentinels joined the league. In 2010 the Soldiers were replaced in the midlands by Tullamore Phoenix, who played until 2013, and the IT Carlow Chargers who lost their sponsor after one game. Drogheda Lightning and Trim (Meath) Bulldogs joined in 2011 and in 2012 North Kildare Reapers, Mullingar Minotaurs and Waterford Wolves joined.

By 2013 the DV8 Development League was replaced by a full 11v11 Division 1 (IAFL 1) below the newly renamed Shamrock Bowl Conference, featuring seven of the Devlopment teams. 2014 saw the introduction of a third division, with Galway Warriors, Dundalk Mavericks, Tyrone Titans and South Kildare Soldiers joining in the IAFL 2. In 2015 Donegal Derry Vipers joined and the Mavericks and Lightning had merged as the Louth Mavericks. In 2016 a further three teams joined: North Dublin Pirates, NI Razorbacks, and Wexford Eagles. That year the Dublin Dragons also disbanded, becoming the reformed South Dublin Panthers. In 2017 the Antrim Jets joined replacing the Tyrone Titans and the two Kildare teams merged as the Cill Dara Crusaders in 2018, by which the Waterford Wolves were playing their last season, as were Galway Warriors in 2019. 2019 was the first year of the Causeway Giants and by now a new administration had taken over, with the IAFA renamed American Football Ireland.
