"Pride of Portree scraped a win, 270-200."
-- match report in the Daily Prophet (DP2)
- The team was founded in 1292 and are known as "The Prides". (QA7)
- The Prides had two league wins in the 1960s. (QA7)
- Famous player: Chaser and team Captain Catriona McCormack, who played for Scotland thirty-six times. Her daughter Meaghan currently plays Keeper and son Kirley is lead guitarist for The Weird Sisters. (QA7, FW)
- According to the Daily Prophet, chaos ensued when the Department of Magical Sports and Games cast an Invisibility Charm on the Quidditch stadium located on Exmoor, making it impossible for Portree and Falmouth Falcons fans to find it. (DP1, DP2)
- During a match against the Appleby Arrows, Portree Seeker Dougal McBride turned the head of his counterpart into a cabbage with an illegal wand, alleging that Arrow Seeker Gregory Cotton had used a Jelly-Fingers curse. (DP3)
Although the dates are uncertain, it may be that Meghan McCormack will have taken over as Seeker for Pride of Portree from Dougal McBride, who surely would have been in trouble for using an illegal wand to curse the head of the Arrows' Seeker.
Portree, a town on the Isle of Skye, in the Hebrides, hosts the shinty team for the Isle of Skye according to its Wikipedia listing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portree).
Although the dates printed on the Daily Prophet Newsletters are DP1: 31 July 1998, DP2: 8 February 1999, DP3: 1 June 1999 and DP4: 1 October 1999, the timeframe for those events is 1992-1993.
The settlement now known as Portree was not called by that name prior to the 1500s. Before that it was called Kiltaraglen ('the church of St. Talarican') from Gaelic Cill Targhlain. This presents a bit of a problem for the timeline of the team. Perhaps they were called the Pride of Kiltargalen when they were founded in the 1200s and by lucky happenstance the town's name changed to something alliterative three hundred years later. Or perhaps the team changed it name when the town did.
