It was dark and cold at 6.30am on a rainy Saturday morning when our intrepid local heroes started to arrive. Full of smiles and excitement, despite the early start, they board the coach bound for Belfast. The Flying Ducks, our local Ice Hockey team, are off for their very first training session on ice for the new season. We cross the Border and then we are here, the excitement is palpable as the mountains of gear is unloaded outside the SSE Arena, home of the famous Belfast Giants Professional Ice Hockey Team.

The Flying Ducks are proud to announce that they are setting up their senior team which will compete in the possible upcoming IIHA Cross Border Cup. The Flying Ducks have a number of junior players who are developing theirs skills and some have been selected to represent the IIHA in the National Development Teams. By having a senior team in place our Flying Ducks juniors have a seamless transition within our clubs structure.
The Flying Ducks are a newly formed team comprising the Flyers Ice Hockey and Dublin Ducks ice hockey clubs. The team ices teams across several age ranges and are also participants in the Irish Ice Hockey Association Junior Development Squad.
The team was contacted about the possibility of hosting a team from the United Kingdom for a game but due to the lack of an ice rink in the Republic of Ireland and the off season at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast the trip could not happen. The Coventry Blaze Academy host an annual junior ice hockey tournament called the Godiva Cup and the invitation for a team from Ireland was extended. It was agreed that the team would attend and the planning got underway. The team departed from Dublin Port early on Friday morning (01 May) with Stenaline who have been exceptional in their support for the team.
