On Saturday 23rd of September Team Ireland are hitting the road for a pair of warm up games against Team Belgium and Team France. We’ll be playing as part of a triple header hosted by Roller Derby Tourcoing that will see each team play each other once.
You can find out all the details at Team France’s Facebook Event here
Did you spot us on the Saturday Night with Miriam show last Saturday (1st July)? No? Yes? Well either way you can rewatch the show on RTE Player until the end of the month. We’re there supporting Revolutions, the documentary covering the beginning of Irish Roller Derby (including the inaugural Team Ireland heading off to their first world cup in 2011)!
We’d like to congratulate and welcome Selina Vile to the team as Line Up Manager. Selina Vile from Manchester Roller Derby will be working with Lt Damn & Jeff to keep the team on track for the next two years.
A big thanks goes out to the Irish Roller Derby Association (IRDA) for organising the application process and for all those who applied for the role.
We’re thrilled to announce that we finished 5th place this weekend at Road to TBC, hosted by Wales! After two tough games against Wales & Sweden, we went on to beat Belgium in the last of our 30 minute games. This put us up against Scotland for 5th place in a full length game, with the final score standing Ireland 108 – 56 Scotland.
A big shout out to all the volunteers, officials, opponents, photographers, medics and fans that made Road to TBC another great success!
We’re pretty thrilled with our first outing as a new squad!
