Has anybody noticed the amount that Irish people pop up in mailbags on Sky Sports, on NFL.com and everywhere else? There really is a sleeper crowd for football here. It just needs some schools to take it up or something. Maybe our schools aren't big enough on average to field teams?

Not allowed play kitted until 17 now, but flag football could get a good base in secondary schools

I have done demo days in a couple of schools and have a few more lined up.
I really need some teachers to become coaches.
There are a few schools in the UK who have really taken to Flag Football.

A Youth and Junior Team Ireland is what I would love to see.

American football in Clonmel, Tipperary.

Hey everyone.

Just thought I'd put up a post here for anyone at all who'd have an interest in playing American Football in Clonmel, Tipperary. At the moment, The Clonmel Warriors are a non-contact team and developing. American Football is well accomodated In Ireland with a league set up for the fully kitted version, there's a league also for flag football.

If you've any interest whatsoever, do contact me. We have a few players and are on the lookout for more. Ages of 16+ are welcomed. If you don't have any idea of how the game is played but have an interest in playing, it's no problem, we'll teach you all the ins and outs of it!

Here's the Warriors Bebo Page : http://www.bebo.com/warriorsfootball

Training takes place each Saturday at 11 am at the Tipperary Insitute. (across from Clonmel Og)

If you've any questions, leave a reply or contact me at Lukozade16@hotmail.com

Thanks,
Luke.

Hi Luke,
Have you made contact with the IAFL yet? (www.iafl.info) Make sure to let them know you're setting up, as they can assist in the process. You'll need to be a member of the IAFL anyway.

Was fascinated to find out there's an Irish football league, (fair play btw), i thought i'd left football forever when i moved over here,

Was just wondering what type of playbooks would most of the teams use, as in would they come up with their own ones, or base them on similar pro/collegiate playbooks in the States, which are available online (and very interesting),

I coach UCD but in the 8's development league. But my playbook is a re hashed version of a playbook from a High School in the US plus my 5 years knowledge. Im certified Level 1 coaching here and have 2 seperate certs from Courses in the US. Alot of the coaches in the IAFL create their playbooks based on their own experience and knowledge mixed with good coaching and standard playbooks from the US I would imagine but again every coach here would have their own method so I could be wrong.

Cool, I'm 18 now and have been over here since 05, played some high school ball back then, as a secondary to baseball, but have probably got a bit rusty since. Would you recommend enlisting for a "8's development team" first to get used to the pace again?

Id say for convenience go to the closest team to you. Going to a development team with the season upon us you might see more game time as they continually take on players as for growth. The full teams do also but you may find it hard establishing yourself into a position but I would say contact all the teams and talk to their coaches. They will all give you a fair shot. Where do you live? If you live Northside you have the Rhinos(Full) in Castleknock, Trinty who play in Santry(Dev), DCU (full) also in Santry/Glasnevin not too sure where they play now. The Rebels (Full) Train in booterstown but play in Santry. Dublin Dragon (Dev) Lucan, and UCD unfortunately is students only which is a development team also.
