Tie-Breaker: head-to-head aggregate score over two matches. (C) Champions (R) Relegated to Division 2.
St. Vincent’s of Glasnevin, Dublin, were the dominant team in Irish Women’s Water Polo from 2016-17 to 2018-19, winning all their league matches every year, indeed their B team, promoted at the end of 2016-17 from Division 2 proved even more formidable than their A team, having won all matches in Division 2 in 2016-17 they proceeded to win all their games in Division 1 in 2017-18, including their A team, defending Champions, twice. With the teams shuffled around for 2018-19 and one of the St. Vincent’s teams back in Division 2, they again won all games that year.
St. Vincent’s were finally defeated in 2019-20, in their fifth game of the season, 9-10 by Clontarf, although held an advantage over Clontarf of a 9-0-1 Wins-Draws-Losses Record to Clontarf’s 4-0-2 Record when the League was cancelled due to COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic government restrictions. The winning streak lasted 40 games over 3 and a third years, including the B teams’ dominance of 2017-18, although technically they were separate teams, albeit from the same club.
