The South Dublin Swans are the 2021 AFL Ireland Premiership winners for the sixth time in their history after an incredible, high-scoring victory over a gallant Leeside Lions last Saturday at dry and warm Trinity College Sports Grounds in Santry.
It was a game the Swans nearly lost in normal time when down by 12 points deep into the final quarter.
However, in the final two minutes, they managed to get the two goals required to force extra-time.
In those extra 20 minutes they ran away from a shellshocked Lions to win the John Locke O’Sullivan Cup.
It was not all in vain for the Leesiders though as their women’s team, the Cork Vikings, had a convincing win the their Grand Final against the Ulster Kookaburras.
The Swans now look forward to playing he AFL Europe Champions League in April in Amsterdam.
