Venues: L – Longford; P – Portadown ^ Overtime # Walkover


Perkele Pelicans won the first Inline Hockey Ireland Hibernia Elite League in 2015-16 with a perfect 12-0 Won-Loss Record, finishing ahead of Longford Hawks (7-4-1 Won-Loss-Overtime Loss), Kilkenny Storm (7-5), and Dublin Rebels (5-6-1). The other three teams in the League were Bangor Chiefs (Co. Down), Galway Bay Lightning and Northern Cyclones.

The Elite League was increased to eight teams for 2016-17 with the addition of new team Rileys, and the promotion of Cork Wolfpack from the IHI League 1. Northern Cyclones pulled out of the League for 2016-17.


After a number of seasons where there were separate Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland Inline Hockey Leagues with an All-Ireland Playoff, the first Hibernia All-Ireland League was introduced in 2015-16. The Elite League – the Premier League in Ireland – was played as a seven team League, playing a 12 game home & away schedule.

Perkele Pelicans, Northern Cyclones, East Coast Blaze and Bangor Chiefs had joined from the Northern Ireland Inline Hockey Association Gold League, and Longford Hawks, Dublin Rebels, Galway Bay Lightning and Kilkenny storm from the National Inline Hockey League after 2014-15. East Coast Blaze dropped down to League 1 before the 2015-16 season started.
