An AFL team,  will play in Ireland , for an International Rules Series , beginning in Limerick on 23 October , 2010.

It continues a 26 year history of competition . The series , was abandoned for two years in 2005 and 2006 , as Australia’s style of play,  was deemed too physically combatitive for the Irish team.

The series was played in 2008 , in Australia , but poor economic conditions led to its cancellation in 2009.
