The Northern Ireland Junior American League was a Junior American Football League that played in Northern Ireland from 1988 to 1992, the last two years as a fully-kitted league, and from 1988 to 1990 as a Two-Touch League, with limited contact and where the ball-carrier is tackled by placing two hands on him or her. It was coed (mixed), i.e. for both boys and girls.
