The first full season of Womens Australian Football in Ireland was played in 2018, over four rounds in a carnival format, with West Clare Waves showing why they are European Champions by winning the title with 13 wins from 15 games.

The First round featured West Clare, Dublin Angels, UCC Crusaders, Portadown Power and North East Kookaburras. North East Kookaburras set the early pace with 3 wins from 3, with West Clare Waves picking up 2 wins from their three matches.

Round 2 featured  the original five teams, plus Galway Magpies, with UCC Crusaders renamed Cork Vikings. The Kookaburras again won all 3 matches to go 6-0, but this was the last Round they played in. West Clare established themselves, only losing to the Kookaburras for the second round running.

Round 3 in Islandbridge, Dublin, saw West Clare waves winning all four matches, with Portadown Power  posting a 1-1-1 record for the round  and Dublin Angels gaining one draw from their four matches, following a draw between the teams. They were the only three teams in the round.

Round 4 saw 5 teams enter with West Clare Waves again going 4-0 to win the title, Portadown Power and Cork Vikings coming in second and third. Newcomers Portlaoise Pixies managed a win against Dublin Angels to lift them above Galway in the Final Table. Dublin Angels finished in mid-table with two wins and a draw, just above North East Kookaburras.
