Report

14 teams entered the first Emerald Bowl conference season in 2014-15, with Mullingar Minotaurs winning Emerald Bowl I 19-13 against the Dublin Vipers. Craigavon Cowboys won surprisingly easily 36-0 in Emerald Bowl II in 2015-16 against the defending Champions. Emerald Bowl III in 2016-17 saw Dublin Vipers finally fulfill their promise with a 26-20 win against the Edenderry Eagles from Co. Offaly.

Edenderry Eagles gained revenge the following year, winning 32-12 against the Vipers, and then in 2018, Craigavon Cowboys became the first team to win the Emerald Bowl twice, defeating the Louth Mavericks 18-12. Edenderry Eagles won their second Bowl in three years in 2019, 54-24 over Trinity College Dublin.

About

In 2014 the Irish Flag Football Association was officially recognised by the Irish American Football Association, and the first Irish Flag Football League season was played 2014-15. Named the Emerald Bowl Conference, this was played for the Emerald Bowl. There had previously been an Irish Flag Football League from 1991-2000, but this was Dublin-Area only, and from then until 2014 there were “Turkey Bowl” type tournaments held over the course of the year (so-named as a lot of the tournaments coincided with Thanksgiving or Christmas)

The 2019 season had seen the League split into two levels – the Emerald Bowl Conference for the top 12, and the Glas Bowl Conference for newer or less established teams. In 2020, under the new American Football Ireland brand, the divisions were renamed the Premier Division and Division 1.

Report

The Maynooth University Flag Football team has existed since 2010 when it was known as NUI Maynooth Phantoms. The highlight of the year for the first four years was the annual Tournament they hosted in the Maynooth University College grounds. In 2012-13 season, they had their greatest achievement, beating the Mullingar Minotaurs in the Turkey Bowl hosted by Dublin 86ers, and they also won a tournament at the end of the 2010-11 season, beating Dublin 86ers in the Final.

They entered the first Emerald Bowl Conference season in 2014-15, where they have had less luck, finishing with a 50% record twice, and a losing record twice. In 2019 the dropped dowm to the Glas Bowl Conference, where they reached the Final, losing to Craigavon Cowboys 2nds. It was their first winning season since the start of the Irish Flag Football League in 2014.

They were known as the NUI Maynooth Phantoms from 2010-2015, and the Maynooth University Bulls from 2015 to 2016, and since then as Maynooth University Hurricanes. The annual Maynooth Tournament, held from 2011 to 2014 was re-established in 2020, when it became an International Charity Tournament. It was also held as part of the Charity Tournament season in 2017-18.

Although suffering a knee-injury on the play, Farrell recovered. The eagles levelled the scores with their second drive, QB Chris Wild finding Chris Broughton in the endzone. The conversion was unsuccessful, and the Cycos mainained the lead. QB Kelly found WR Farrel with two touchdown passes on the next two Cycos drives, with Kelly intercepting the Eagles in between. This made the score 19-6. The Cycos got their fourth TD with a run from Stephen Dunne. He also caught the pass for the two-point conversion, making the score 27-6. Kelly found Farrell for a hat-trick of TD passes with Dunne once again adding the two-point conversion to make the score 35-6. Reference: [6]

McGuinness got an interception of his own to set up the final Drimnagh scoring drive, as Aidan Kelly ran in another TD. On defence, Cameron Cramer and Darren Brady both sacked the Quarterback, while the Eagles got two sacks of their own. QB Aidan Kelly picked up the Cycos MVP award. Reference: [6]
