Redskins vs Yankees

REPORT

An All-American Evening at Rifle Park, Banbridge, Co. Down on Friday Evening, the 19th August, 1983, was to have included an American Football game between two teams of specially-trained Rugby players. The “Redskins” versus “Yankees” was to be the highlight of the evening which also had all the razzamatazz of cheerleaders and bands.

The match, if it actually went ahead, would push back the history of Irish American Football a further year. As it Currently stands the Dublin Celts are the first ever Irish American Football Team, founded in 1984, and the first ever match between two Irish teams (A Flag Football match) took place in Omagh, Co. Tyrone, in 1985, between the Tyrone Tornadoes and Coleraine Chieftains.

It is unlikely the teams were kitted, so it may have been something similar to Ohio League American Football in the USA in the early 20th Century, which would have looked more like Rugby Union or Rugby League than the modern game of American Football.

REPORT

The East Side Jets, from Castlereagh in East Belfast, made a successful start to their Irish American Football preseason, winning 6-0 on their debut against Aldergove Hawks, at RAF Aldergrove in Antrim, before defeating Bangor Buccaneers 7-2 on their home debut, with a fourth quarter touchdown from Mark Dunwoody, who ran in from 25 yards out.

The Craigavon Cowboys won 26-0 against Bangor Buccaneers, with Shamrock Bowl I MVP (Most Valuable Player) from 1986, Nigel Trimble scoring a 21-yard run, which John Mulally added to with a reception from QB Geoff Donaghy. There was a second passing TD in the second half as Brendan McAleese added a reception, and then Stanley Kingsmill finished off the scoring with a 9 yard run. McAleese also scored two extra points.

Belfast Blitzers defeated Belfast Spartans 45-6 at Musgrave Park in Belfast at the end of March.

In the final Preseason match of 1987, Carrickfergus Cougars came from behind to defeat Belfast Spartans. Hollowell had put the Spartans 7-6 up with a TD which was converted, and then Hollowell put the Spartans further ahead with a second touchdown just after halftime. With only two minutes left on the clock, the Cougars struck back, with a TD, adding a two-point conversion, to lead 14-13, which they held despite a late Spartans drive, which left them in Field Goal position. the Cougars managed to block the FG, though, to seal the win.

International American Football Friendlies 1986

Report

Irish American Football Teams played four International Friendlies in 1986, the first season of the Irish American Football League. Beginning with two preseason matches involving the Dublin Celts, then Ireland’s only fully kitted team with pads and helmets.

The Celts won their first two games of the season 14-0 versus the Wirral Wolves from Merseyside in England, and 16-14 versus Newcastle Senators in a much closer game.

Following the end of the Irish American Football League season Carrickfergus Cougars took on Scotland’s Ayr Burners in a postseason Bowl Game, losing 8-28.

Then in the last game of the season for Irish teams, the Green Isle All-Stars made up of players from the Dublin Celts, Belfast Blitzers, Craigavon Cowboys, Belfast Giants, Bangor Buccaneers and Dublin Tornadoes played the first ever game against American opposition ever played by an Irish American Football team, going down 0-36 in Kilmacud Crokes GAA ground in Stillorgan, Dublin 18.

About this Proposal

While there are 32 counties in Ireland ever since the shiring of Co. Wicklow, and a 32-County Championship is something die-hard Traditional GAA fans and players want never to change, it has become increasingly necessary for the GAA to change with the times and globalisation in recent years.

The need is three-fold. One increasing development in the Dublin Area and East Ulster means the counties along the Eastern Seaboard from Dublin to Belfast are experiencing a surge in population. This has been most noticable in Dublin’s dominance in the GAA Football Championship – winning an unprecedented 6-in-a-row last year.

Secondly with a large amount of immigration and interest from the Irish Diaspora abroad and non-Irish people from Argentina to the Arctic, Hawaii all the way back around to Russia and Japan, the need to promote the game beyond the traditional GAA community is more necessary than ever.

Added to this is the vast array of other sports and games and interests and hobbies for people to take up when young, which will make even more demands on the GAA’s traditional base.

With the Internet now available from Dublin to Clare, Kerry to Donegal, Eirball has become a fan of Scottish Shinty, Welsh Baseball (their Rounders), Breton and Galician Gaelic Football, Cornish Hurling and Manx Cammag, and feels that the time will come some day in the future when these forgotten Gaelic or Celtic Countries and Games are part of the wider GAA Community again.

New York and London compete in the GAA Championships, so one day why not the other Counties in Britain and around the World – while not official counties yet, Argentina, Caribbean, Mexico, Russia and Africa all have GAA Clubs and one day could have enough for full county status. The rest of the GAA Counties mentioned from around the World in this list already have GAA County status and considered equal with the 32 in Ireland in the GAA constitution. They already play in the British Provincial Championship and World Games, just not yet in the All-Ireland.

Which brings us to the new counties – GAA has been experimenting with new counties in Ireland in order to promote Hurling and Football in non-traditional areas: the counties of Fingal and South Down were created for this purpose, as was a Gaeltacht Football championship to promote Football in Gaelic-speaking areas.

If Professionalism is to come as some elite players and commentators in the media are asking how can it be done in order to prevent Dublin winning every single year: Eirball’s proposal is to make Dublin a province with 4 counties: Dublin City, Fingal, DLR and South Dublin, as is the case with the current civil blondaries. Add in UCD and Garda and it becomes a 6-county province.

Similarly, Ulster could become 12 counties if newer counties (boroughs) in Northern Ireland are recognised by the GAA, such as Causeway, Mourne and Belfast City. Munster could have a “New Munster” Province with Cork City, Limerick City, Waterford City, West Cork, An Gaeltacht (playing out of Dingle as HQ), and Hibernians Counties. Connemara could be added to Connacht and Kildare split into North and South and we have a balanced-schedule of 12 Provinces of 6 – 6 Provinces each in an All-Ireland and World Games halves, or Leinster, Connacht-Munster, Ulster (including Britain) and World Quarters.

This then could become the basis for an Inter-Provincial Championship with either 12 or 9 Provinces (whether to split Leinster, Ulster and Munster for this is probably unnessary, just necessary for a balanced schedule in the County Championship). A 9 team Inter-Provincial Series could be the Professional Championship Elite Players want: Dublin, Connacht, Leinster, Munster, Ulster, Britain, America, Orient and Celtic.

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.
