All Ireland Roller Derby News

  • Team All-Ireland vs SSRG!

    Hey all,

    Well, after a weekend of watching lots of rollerderby (and taking notes on potential competition for the World Cup!) I thought it might be wise to keep the 'derby bandwagon rolling and update you all on what Team All-Ireland are getting up to.

    We had a team practice a few weekends ago (which unfortunately I couldn't make - sad face) and are really starting to gel nicely as a team, so of course the next logical step is to get out there and play as a team. So we are!

    We'll be playing the lovely Sheffield Steel Roller Girls in a closed door bout in October. It's a closed door event, so we won't be advertising it out to spectators, but it's a fantastic opportunity for us to play as a team, instead of against each other all the time!

    Of course we'll let you know how we get on ... and of course we're going to win :) (hopefully!)

    We've also got talks of other teams we're looking to play against - for very up to date information, keep tabs on our facebook page, although I'll try and update all of the news on here too!

    We've also confirmed our Vice Captain, which I hadn't announced last time - congratulations to the lovely Jessica Mooney who has been voted in as VC. That's a pretty strong Captain and Vice Captain lined up already!

    So lots of excitement, lots happening here, however ... in the meantime, please feel free to order a teeshirt, or pass on some cents, pennies, euros, pounds, dollars and other currency through our donate button on the homepage - as well as helping a new sport to take off and be well represented in Ireland, any assistance means the rollergirls and guys can concentrate on getting their game on, instead of spending time raising funds. We'll send you thanks by kicking booty on track :)

    Til next time, hugs and shoves,




  • Team All-Ireland are GO!

    Hi all,

    Holly here, me and Kitty will be giving you all a few updates on what's happening in the world of Team All-Ireland and keeping you all in the know with our progress. I'll try not to duplicate anything already on the website, but sometimes things get too exciting so I may just repeat some information (for example - have you ordered your Team All-Ireland teeshirt yet?!)

    Well, the team was created just over two months ago, following on from the tryouts held in Dublin, and in the meantime we've been busy little bunnies! We had our first 'team' practice at the end of July, working out how we play with each other, and where we fit in best within the team and in lineups. Even though lots of the skaters were involved in a bout the following day (CCF vs DRG), everyone was giving their all which was great to see! I certainly left the day with a fair few bruises, and a wonderful rinkrash (which was rather uncomfortable on the plane home!)

    Behind the scenes, this website popped up; we've been working on setting up bouts against other teams, so we get to play as a whole, rather than against each other; we've been chasing up some potential sponsors (keep your eyes peeled to this site for more information about team sponsors - and if you have a few spare Euro (or other denomination!) don't forget there's a 'Donate' function through this website, as every cent will count towards our trip!) and we voted in our Team Captain - congratulations to Sinister Mary Clarence of the London Rollergirls!

    Individually the girls and guys are all working hard both on and off-skates, Violent Bob, our Head Coach, is currently at a ref bootcamp (hopefully mastering the art of how to negotiate penalties with Head Referees!) and we're all putting time into fundraising, as individuals and teams. (Again, note the 'Donate' button ...)

    So, to summarise, we're all go here, keep your eyes peeled for bouts we'll be playing in, information on who's helping us to get to Canada, and order yourself a teeshirt - we hope to make every teeshirt wearer proud in December!

    The usual hugs 'n shoves

    (ps, I apologise in advance if my future posts become less diplomatic, and more rambling. I'm almost certain they will!)
