The Volleyball Association of Ireland was rebranded Volleyball Ireland in 2017, and the Division 2 Women (Division or Level 3 in Ireland) was won in 2017-18 by Munster Thunder who dropped only the one set on the way to a 10 wins from 10 games, 30 point season.
There was widespread change in the composition of the Division for 2018-19 with some new teams and some teams being promoted to Division 1 and replaced in Division 2 by relegated teams. Santry won the Division that year, winning all 10 games also en route to a 30-point season, although not in as convincing style, as they dropped 12 sets in total, nonetheless it was still a remarkable feat.#
For 2019-20 the Division jumped to 9 teams from 6, as expansion in the regions brought in Kilkenny Spartans VC and Longford Smashers from Leinster, and the addtion of a second Munster Thunder team (the first team of the Limerick side played in the Premier). The season was cut short, however, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, which brought the cancellation of all sporting activity. The Naas Cobras were out in front with 37 points from 13 matches (12 wins and one loss), 7 ahead of Munster Thunder’s seconds team in second place when the league finished.
