The Vipers compete in the IAFA league (Irish American Football Association) and are the premier team in the north west.

The team was founded in 2014  and has gone from strength to strength since its inception and was promoted to IAFA1 in 2017 after a very successful undefeated 2016 season resulting in the team winning the IAFA2 bowl.

Last year  the team made the playoffs for the second year in a row only to fall  short of making the final.
