Home Venue (Boyne Community School, Trim, Co. Meath)


The Trim Bulldogs were set up by Californian Garland Drake in Trim, Co. Meath in september 2010 and entered the DV8 Development League in 2011.

The Trim Bulldogs had a difficult year in the DV8 Development League, losing all their matches heavily. The League was an 8-a-side League and was set up with two aims – Allowing teams which have been newly set up and building their player/equipment levels to play kitted American Football, and to enable larger IAFL teams to field 2nd teams.

The Bulldogs managed one Touchdown, however, against Drogheda Lightning. They also played matches against other Regional Leinster team, Tullamore Phoenix, as well as games against 2nds teams of more established IAFL teams Dublin Dragons and Craigavon Cowboys.
