Honours: None.

History: The Tullamore Phoenix were founded in 2010 as an 8v8 Team in the Irish American Football League Development League, taking over from the Midlands Soldiers as the team in the Midlands. After two seasons playing 8v8 Football in the Development League, they made the step up to the Full 11v11 Irish American Football League, winning one game in their first season (19-0 versus Dublin Dragons in their opening game). The following year they were relegated to the new Irish American Football League 1-Conference, where they won 2 games of 8 and tied another. Again they managed to defeat the Dublin Dragons, and also beat the Mullingar Minotaurs, but folded after the season, presumably due to competition for players with new Midlands teams the Mullingar Minotaurs, North Kildare Reapers and South Kildare Soldiers.

Home Venue: Tullamore RFC, Co. Offaly
