South Dublin Panthers

The South Dublin Panthers are one of Ireland’s premier American Football clubs.

The Panthers compete in American Football for adults, youth and flag football leagues.

One of the most established organisations in Ireland, the Panthers have competed for National Championships domestically and in European tournaments.

Founded as the Dublin Dragons in 2001, the club was reborn as the South Dublin Panthers in 2014. Nearly 20 years of experience has made the Panthers one of Ireland’s leading clubs. Athletes and Coaches have represented Ireland in American Football and as the popularity of the sport grows, the Panthers continue to grow. The club has expanded their membership to some of it’s highest levels and are one of the biggest clubs in Ireland.

The Panther’s have gone from strength to strength in recent years making their first playoff appearance in a narrow overtime loss to eventual Shamrock Bowl XXXII champions, the Cork Admirals, in 2018 and the following year overcoming the unbeaten Cork Admirals in the semi-final to make their first ever Shamrock Bowl appearance (Shamrock Bowl XXXIII).

The Panthers are based in South Dublin and currently train between Tymon Park and Westmanstown with their home games being played at the later.
