It’s the busiest month in Irish Roller Derby that I’ve ever seen. Just check out the upcoming games! There’s something happening every single week! And that’s not even talking about the majesty of the Dublin Roller Derby/ Calgary/ CCR games on the 8th which was absolutely amazing - we got a chance to watch top-tier derby right here in Ireland and it was utterly brilliant!
After a very busy February, things are a little quieter this month, but there’s still plenty to whet your Derby appetite. Most of the action is concentrated around the weekend of the 11/12th and it’s from there we’ll take a look at the spotlight game of the month.
It’s noses to the grindstone for most of the leagues in Ireland over the next few months – lots of training, recruitment, bootcamps and scrimmages around the country. Here’s a quick round up of what’s happening in February!
This weekend, Greystones and the East Coast Cyclones will play host to only the second ever roller derby tournament to be held on Irish soil. The last one was in Belfast and was an absolute belter – with Dublin Roller Derby A coming home the overall winners – with Belfast Roller Derby in second place and Limerick Roller Derby in third.
