Martin Ryan

‘Crazy’ is one of the Swans longest serving players, having played with the Swans since their inception in 2006. Before that he had featured for the South Dublin Eagles, but was one of a group of players who sought a fresh start in forming a new club. In the past decade Martin has become the Swans and ARFLI's most decorated club player, playing in seven grand finals and winning five of those. In recent years he has also assumed a coaching role at the club, helping to drive the club onwards and upwards. Aside from his on-field achievements, his off-field contributions, his unswerving commitment and dedication, it is his passion for both the club and the sport that sets him apart.

Ryan Serocki

‘Rhino’ came to the Swans in 2008 and the Adelaide native quickly established himself as a play-making midfield stalwart. His seven year playing career with the Swans saw him make over forty appearances, winning three premierships, captaining the Swans to 2010 premiership victory and delivering a ‘Best on Ground’ performance in the Swans 2013 premiership victory, all of which cemented the status of this modest and unassuming player as a Swans playing ‘legend’.

ARFLI Grand Final 2015 Redbacks v Swans

The South Dublin Swans won the 2015 Australian Football League of Ireland (ARFLI) Grand Final after a nail biting final against last year’s champions the Belfast Redbacks on the last Saturday of August in Belfast.

With less than a minute remaining in the final quarter the Redbacks had one last chance to retain their crown but a close in mark from a tight angle by Redbacks’ Australian full forward Andrew Hickey yielded just a behind rather than the goal required.  If they had goaled, it would have been tough on the Swans who led for the majority of the game.

The Redbacks started the game the better and had a one goal advantage at the end of the first quarter.  By half-time the Swans had recovered and went into the main break with a 11 point lead, 3.7 25 to 2.2 14.   The Redbacks knew they had a challenge on their hands and came back hard in the second half, but the Swans held out for a thrilling two point victory, winning 6.9 45 to 6.7 43.

Swans 200cm ruckman Paul O’Halloran set the platform for victory winning the majority of hit outs and he was well supported in midfield by Cork man Michael Hurley, Derry man Bryan O'Kane and Dublin man Liam Burns who ran tirelessly throughout the game. The Swans defence was marshalled by James O’Byrne and Peter Ross in the full back line who dealt efficiently with many of the Redbacks attacks. Up front Kevin Brennan was particularly dangerous, bagging a brace of crucial goals.

Goal Kickers: Kev 2, Marty, Bryce, Manus, Omar.

ARFLI Semi Final 2015 Swans v Magpies

Despite a number of injuries, the Swans made it through to the 2015 Grand Final after a 39 point win over the Galway Magpies. Rookie forward Seamus Owens kicked 6 goals with a best on ground performance, with impressive performances also from other rookies Rob Monks and Liam Burns.

ARFLI Round 9 2015 Redbacks v Swans

ARFLI Round 8 2015 Lions v Swans

After narrowly losing at home to the Lions the previous weekend the Swans got their season back on track at Emly, Co. Tipperary with a comprehensive victory over the Lions, Swans 19.10 124 def Leeside Lions 4.4 28. This victory arrested a sequence of three losses on the bounce for the Swans. Joey Carroll (missing from photo as he got lost on the drive down!) shone with 4 second half goals from full forward, however half forwards Omar Mamad and Craig Wood also had their scoring boots on, in a performance which set the tone for the Swans successful finish to the season.

ARFLI Round 1 2015 Swans v Magpies

The ARFLI Premiership season commenced with the South Dublin Swans hosting the Galway Magpies at Perrystown. There was a strong wind blowing across the oval that made kicking difficult for both sides. Both teams had good numbers for the first outing of the year. In a low scoring game influenced by the wind the Swans had the majority of the possession but found the wind difficult in front of goal. In contrast the Magpies had far fewer shots at goal but were much more economical in their goal scoring rate.

A major part of the Swans success was holding the top goal kickers of the 2014 season, John O’Regan and Shaun ‘Smurf’ Murphy goalless. However the windy conditions definitely favoured defences on the day. Special mention to the volunteers of Robert Emmets GAA club who gave both teams a great reception on the day.

Final Score: South Dublin Swans 5.14 44 def Galway Magpies 3.1 19

Goalkickers: Bryan, Pete, Tom, Jack, Omar.

Team: Darren Sheils, Paul O'Halloran, Bryce Fraser, Shane Thomas, Jimmy O'Byrne, Tom Russell, Brian Powell, Paddy Cummins, Noel Tate, Jack Martinelli, Darren Snell, Peter Ross, Edward Warren, Omar Mamad, Kevin Brennan, Craig Wood, Tristan McCall, Ja O'Loughlin, Carl Achilles, Bobby Byrne, Jimmy Jamieson.

Craig Wood

‘Woodsy’ was an early stalwart of the South Dublin Swans, helping to establish the club in 2006 and assisting in their early drive towards success, both as a committed coach on the training ground and hard-working rover on the playing field. The Wodonga native had previously played for the South Dublin Eagles and despite being one of the smaller players to play for the Swans he was undoubtedly one of the toughest. He was ever present in the 2006 Swans premiership winning side, never missing a game or training session. He earned the ‘Most Valuable Player’ award at the prestigious 2006 Scania Cup in Sweden with a series of hard-running displays, something he replicated every time he pulled on a Swans jumper.
