About Aussie Rules

The UCC ‘Bombers’ are the leading varsity team in Ireland. The sport has a similar skills set to GAA and Rugby. There is no previous skill or knowledge required to join our club as each year we start from the beginning to give every player the best possible opportunity to learn, play and enjoy this sport as so many before have!

The club is very competitive in terms of competing in national and international leagues. We won our main national competition the Rebel Shield against the Leeside Lions in a two leg competition. We also came 2nd and 3rd in the Fitzpatrick cup in the European Varsities, being the only University to field two teams.

In keeping with the tradition with footy there is a strong social side to the club where many friendships are forged on and off the field of play.

The Bombers currently only have a men’s teams and training is open to anyone who wishes to train with the team for leisure or competitive purposes.
