The rise of American Football in Dublin

American Football has been growing in popularity in Ireland for the last few years, with around thirty teams taking part in competition around the country.

The main competition, the Irish American Football League (IAFL) sees the top teams during the year competing against each other to land a spot in March’s culmination – the Shamrock Bowl.

We caught up with one of the teams in the IAFL at the moment, University College Dublin (UCD), as they outline why the sport has grown so much and whether it will continue to do so.
