About Us

Who Are We?

The Flying Ducks is an Ice Hockey and Inline Hockey club for boys and girls between the ages of seven and seventeen. We cater for players from Dublin, Meath, Louth and Kildare.

We compete nationally and internationally in both sports and are governed by the Irish Ice Hockey Association and Inline Hockey Ireland.

The club has a Learn-to-Play group for those starting out in the sport. For more advanced players, we have Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 18 teams.

Training Sessions

We train and compete on ice on a temporary ice rink in Tallaght between November and February every year. For the rest of the year, we train and compete on inline blades in leisure centres in Coolmine and Gormanston, Co. Meath.

Time slots for training sessions are based on age or skill level and more detail can be found here. We have an equipment rental scheme that covers everything except inline blades and club jerseys.

Our History

The Flying Ducks was established in 2015 following discussions about the possibility of merging the two existing junior ice hockey clubs. The Flyers Ice Hockey Club and the Dublin Ducks had collaborated previously in games and tournaments and both teams had player shortfalls in various age brackets.

Following the teams’ AGMs, the decision was made to consolidate the teams under the name the ‘Flying Ducks’. The name had already been used to describe the coming together of the ‘Flyers’ and the ‘Ducks’ and the young players loved it.

We always welcome new players. If you are interested in playing ice hockey or inline hockey with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.
