The Irish national side annually compete in the Six Nations – a competition which they have won 14 times in 124 tournaments, which includes 3 Grand Slams. The most recent Irish Championship victory came in 2018, which included the third of their Grand Slams.
Along with the Six Nations itself, Ireland also play for 3 other trophies during the Six Nations; the Triple Crown (awarded if either Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales beat all other Home Nations); Centenary Quaich (vs Scotland) and the Millennium Trophy (vs England).
In their eight Rugby World Cup appearances, Ireland have made it to the quarter final stage on six occasions, but have never progressed any further. In the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, Ireland will line up in Pool A, alongside Scotland, Japan, Russia and Samoa, and will hope to make it to their first semi final, if not further!
