Tullamore Phoenix repeated as Champions of the DV8 Development League with an excellent 5-1 record, only losing to Carrickfergus Knights 2nds on the last day of the season. The Knights and Craigavon Cowboys 2nds teams both won all their games, but only played a half schedule.

Drogheda Lightning managed two wins against fellow newcomers Trim Bulldogs, who failed to win a match. The Dublin Dragons 2nds won one match against Trim 51-0.

Team Changes from 2010

Drogheda Lightning and Trim Bulldogs were two new Leinster Regional teams. Erris Rams and IT Carlow Chargers dropped out of the League, as did the seconds teams of UCD, Trinity College and Dublin Rebels. Dublin Dragons fielded a seconds team for the first time.


The DV8 Development League was an 8-a-side fully kitted league and was set up in 2008 with two main aims: (1) To give teams in the Irish Regions a chance to play Competitive Football while building up their kit & player numbers and (2) to enable 2nds teams of bigger IAFL teams in the main league to field 2nds teams.
