September & October 2021 Recap

St. Vincent’s (Glasnevin, Dublin), as expected having dominated Women’s Water Polo in Ireland over the previous few years, were on top of the 2021-22 Swim Ireland Water Polo Women’s National League Division 1 Table with three wins from three. They were closely followed by Tribes (Galway), North Dublin and Diamonds (Belfast) all with two wins, though each had at least one loss (Diamonds had two losses). North Dublin had also drawn a game with Cathal Brugha which was the Belfast teams only points so far. Drogheda (Co. Louth, Leinster) were pointless although had a crunch early season relagation six-pointer versus Cathal Brugha coming up in the first week of November. [References: 1-2]

November / December 2021 Recap

St. Vincent’s continued on winning ways with an 11-8 defeat of North Dublin while Tribes kept pace with the Northside Dublin team with a 10-5 win at Drogheda. The victories put both teams on 12 points, although St. Vincent’s are unbeaten with a game in hand. With only one game in December, Tribes WPC defeated Diamonds WPC 12-3 to put Tribes on top on points. [References: 1-2]

January 2022 Recap

In what was due to be a crucial game at the top of the table, Tribes forfeited their game away to St. Vincent’s WPC, and Drogheda found enough to defeat North Dublin 7-6 to gain a crucial three points with the other four teams apart from St. Vincent’s and Tribes battling against relegation amongst themselves. Later in January Tribes were defeated heavily 2-11 by Cathal Brugha, and with St. Vincent’s winning two games by putting up a big score, 18-6 at Diamonds WPC and 14-9 at home to Drogheda WPC although the latter game was closer than would have been expected given the two teams positions in the table. [References: 1-2]

February / March 2022 Recap

With only two games in February, Drogheda WPC kept up their recent good form, defeating Diamonds WPC 9-2, and St. Vincent’s continued their march to a perfect league season with a 10-5 victory at Northside rivals North Dublin. On the 5th March, St. Vincent’s won big again, 17-6 at Cathal Brugha to leave the Belfast team at the bottom of the table on four points. The relegation battle was proving more interesting than the title fight, which had already been won by the Glasnevin team. Drogheda WPC were on 9 Points; North Dublin 7 points; Diamonds WPC 6 points and Cathal Brugha 4 points, with an average of three games to go (Cathal Brugha had four games left and Drogheda WPC two games left). [References: 1-2]

April / May 2022 Recap

In the first weekend of April, St. Vincent’s completed their perfect league season, winning 10 of 10 matches with a 13-6 victory at Drogheda WPC, who remained third, but just behind were Diamonds WPC, the Belfast team winning a vital match 15-7 versus Tribes WPC of Galway, who remained second with Diamonds moving above North Dublin into fourth. Cathal Brugha, also of Belfast remained sixth. Cathal Brugha drew two games in a row at the end of March and beginning of April with a 7-7 draw at Tribes WPC on the 9th of April coming two weeks after a 4-4 draw at home to Drogheda WPC, giving them some hope in the relegation battle. The season finished out with a mini-round-robin between Cathal Brugha, Diamonds and North Dublin, which would decide third to sixth places in the table and relegation. First Diamonds defeated North Dublin 8-7 on 23 April and then Cathal Brugha won 7-4 versus Diamonds on 30 April before drawing the final match of the season 5-5 with North Dublin on 7th May. This left Diamonds in third on 12 points, Drogheda in fourth on 10 points ahead of Cathal Brugha on head-to-head and North Dublin in sixth on 8 points. [References: 1-2]

Monthly Recaps

October Recap

Cathal Brugha (Belfast, 12 Points) and Corrib (Galway, 9 Points) were both 100% at the end of October in the Swim Ireland Water Polo 2021-22 Men’s National League Division 1, with their crucial encounter coming up on the 6th November. North Dublin were in third on 6 points having lost only one game to leaders Cathal Brugha. St. Vincent’s (Glasnevin, Dublin) were on 3 points following a sole victory over Sandycove SC (Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Dublin) who were pointless along with Drogheda WPC and Cú Chulainn.

November Recap

St. Vincent’s joined Cathal Brugha on 9 points with a 6-4 win over North Dublin, and another challenger to Cathal Brugha besides North Dublin, Corrib, also faltered with a 9-10 loss to Sandycove who moved to 6 points. In the third match, between the two pointless teams, Drogheda and Cú Chulainn, the Belfast team won a close game 11-10, with Cú Chulainn coming from 9-3 down mid-way through the 3rd quarter for their first win of the season (match report available)

January / February Recap

North Dublin recorded two good wins, 17-9 versus Corrib and 10-6 at Cathal Brugha to move to 12 points. The game against Cathal Brugha in particular was a big win, coming away to the Irish Senior Cup winners (match report available). North Dublin’s attack was excellent in the win, which was Cathal Brugha’s first loss of the season. The Corrib game two weeks previously saw North Dublin race into a 5-0 lead after the first quarter and 9-1 at halftime, winning 17-9 at the end thanks to some clinical finishing (match report available).

March Recap

The top 3, Cathal Brugha, St. Vincent’s and North Dublin each won their game in March, with North Dublin winning by default over Cú Chulainn, St. Vincent’s defeating Corrib WPC 15-11 and Cathal Brugha defeating Sandycove 18-8, all on Saturday the 5th of March. The next day Sandycove picked up a good win, 9-8 versus North Dublin, and St. Vincent’s had a big 21-5 victory over Drogheda WPC. North Dublin won 15-8 at Drogheda WPC the following Saturday, but the big game of the weekend was earlier in the day, when St. Vincent’s made an important 12-6 win against nearest challengers Cathal Brugha. Such was the relative positions of the two teams, a Cathal Brugha win would have almost ceratinly wrapped up the title for the Belfast team. The two teams were now on two defeats each going into the last two to three games, with Cathal Brugha picking up a walkover victory over Drogheda WPC on March 26th. [References: 1-2]

April / May Recap

St. Vincent’s WPC were held to a 6-6 draw by North Dublin in the first weekend of April, meaning Cathal Brugha moved to within a point of the Dublin Northside team with a walkover victory versus Corrib WPC. Sandycove SC’s 11-9 win over Drogheda WPC, also on the first weekend of April, saw the Dublin Southside team move clear of Corrib WPC in mid-table, with Drogheda WPC still at the bottom with zero points. Cathal Brugha defeated Cú Chulainn 27-4 in a double-fixture and North Dublin won a close game with Corrib WPC 10-9 in the second week of April. Cathal Brugha’s double victory over Cú Chulainn meant the title went to the Belfast team. The Penultimate Round of Fixtures saw North Dublin defeat Drogheda WPC 12-8 to finish in third on 25 points and St. Vincent’s winning 9-7 at Sandycove leaving St. Vincent’s in second on 28 points and Sandycove in fourth on 19 Points. In addition Corrib received a walkover from Cú Chulainn. On May the 7th the Final game was a relegation six-pointer which Drogheda WPC won 16-7 over Cú Chulainn, meaning the Louth team finished above the Belfast team on head-to-head (26-18) after both teams finished with three points.

Recap

Cathal Brugha from Belfast won the Irish Water Polo Association U19 National Cup in 1997 by defeating North Dublin 11-2 in the Final. The Cup was hosted in Claremorris, Co. Mayo for the first time, and the home team claimed the first ever win by a Connacht team at this level in Water Polo with a 7-5 victory over Grads, also of Belfast, in their Final Group B match.

Marian, from Dublin, won a tightly contested Group A ahead of Dublin’s Glenalbyn and Belfast’s Clonard. Group B was a four team Group with winners Cathal Brugha and runners-up North Dublin qualifying for the Semi-Finals ahead of Claremorris and Grads. Group C saw two runaway wins for St. Vincent’s of Glasnevin in Dublin, qualifying ahead of Belfast’s Setanta and Galway’s Corrib.

The Knockout Rounds showed Cathal Brugha to be well-deserving victors with a 14-5 defeat of Marian in the Semi-Finals and an 11-2 triumph in the Final versus North Dublin. North Dublin had knocked out St. Vincent’s 7-5 in an all-Northside Dublin match in the other Semi-Final.

Report

St. Vincent’s of Glasnevin, Dublin, were the dominant team in Irish Women’s Water Polo from 2016-17 to 2018-19, winning all their league matches every year, indeed their B team, promoted at the end of 2016-17 from Division 2 proved even more formidable than their A team, having won all matches in Division 2 in 2016-17 they proceeded to win all their games in Division 1 in 2017-18, including their A team, defending Champions, twice. With the teams shuffled around for 2018-19 and one of the St. Vincent’s teams back in Division 2, they again won all games that year.

St. Vincent’s were finally defeated in 2019-20, in their fifth game of the season, 9-10 by Clontarf, although held an advantage over Clontarf of a 9-0-1 Wins-Draws-Losses Record to Clontarf’s 4-0-2 Record when the League was cancelled due to COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic government restrictions. The winning streak lasted 40 games over 3 and a third years, including the B teams’ dominance of 2017-18, although technically they were separate teams, albeit from the same club.
