Your eyes are not deceiving you: Sligo Rovers are indeed the new champions of Ireland!

Okay, so the Bit O'Red haven't completed a repeat of 2012 by winning the League of Ireland title, but a five man squad representing the club have swept all before them to be deemed the best League of Legends team in the entire country.

We are, of course, speaking about Three Ireland's EStars tournament, the final of which place at the weekend in the 3Arena. Eight weeks of competitive action culminated in an intense day of gaming in Dublin as ten teams comprising fifty of the best players in Ireland fought it out for the grand prize of €20,000 and a trip to Las Vegas.


A bumper crowd were on hand to witness Sligo Rovers defeat Shamrock Rovers 2-0 in a best-two-out-of-three duel (and presumably winning the right for sole use of the Rovers moniker). The west of Ireland team were represented by Kevin Treanor, Darren Hopkins, Robert Cooney, Johnny Cummins and Viktor Kudrickij.

In recent years eSports have been taking a hold in Ireland, but the EStars could prove to be the premier tournament in the field in the years to come given the success of the event. It definitely looked like a day of great fun.


Look at those jerseys!
