The story of Ireland's International Cup 2011

International Cup 2011

Follow the adventures of the Irish Australian Rules Football teams in Australia for the AFL International Cup 2011.  This youtube slideshow created by Irish blogger Peter Ross follows the Irish teams' time in Australia from the opening ceremony to their post game Grand Final celebrations in the MCG.  Peter's wife, Melbourne born and bred Dr. Tammy Verlaan-Ross was the team Chiropractor. 

Her participation was supported by the Chiropractic Association of Ireland, the official healthcare provider of the Irish team. Ireland's men (the Warriors) defeated reigning champions Papua New Guinea to win the Cup for the second time in their history and the women (the Banshees) also won, defeating Canada in the first ever women's Grand Final. 


Speaking about putting the slideshow together Peter said 'it was a significant achievement for both Irish teams to win their respective tournaments and creating something like this was a way to tell Ireland and the AFL community worldwide a little more about the great event that is the International Cup.'  You can read more about the trip from Irish eyes on Peter's blog www.irishwarriorsaussierules.wordpress.com

Thanks for the feedback Sebastian, until we hear back on these sort of issues we just assume it will work everywhere if it works for us in our own country.  We are aware that some AFL content, particularly anything that comes via Telstra Bigpond is often unable to be viewed outside Australia. 

I do not know what the legalities are in Germany but it is sometimes possible to get around these issues by using proxy servers in other countries if there is content you keen to view.
