3rd Nov Update Since 6th October James Harkin (Public Relations Officer)

So Hello everyone!

Been a little while, lock-downs and uncertain circumstances all around us.We hope everyone is keeping safe.

Since the last update we played 8 games, with the season ending lock-down leaving us a mid season 5-3 record with some unlucky results just not quite heading our way, although still very much a lock to make the playoffs.

We had 3 players selected for the Irish National team! Congrats to President Alan Campbell, Vice-President Luke Mcintyre and Ian Anders!

Catch us on Sunday for the NFL games on Zoom talking absolute nonsense about our favorite teams and how much we love to watch them lose!

Gonna be posting a lot more events and activities between here and our Instagram(@muhurricanes) so make sure to check it out and give it a follow! And who knows there might even be a little something in the works for a lucky Instagram follower down the line.












6th Oct Start of year update! Diarmid Brown (Alumni Rep)

Hi Everyone! 

We would like to officially welcome you all to the American Football team! 

We have so many plans to make this a fantastic year for everyone involved. Whilst our competitive season may be delayed due to government restrictions, the committee is carefully planning a training schedule to give the best possible outcome. We aim to train on Wednesdays from 5-6pm and Thursday morning from 10-12, both on the Phoenix Astro pitch.

Outside of competitive games, we aim to hold events for both Thanksgiving and The Superbowl. There are frequent madden tournaments held with prizes up for grabs each time. We also hope to host zoom calls each Sunday night to talk about that weeks ongoing NFL games.

We're all so excited to start the new year and meet everyone!
