Ireland Background

The emergence of the European Cup has definitely benefited the Irish game as it has allowed the game in Ireland to focus on provincial teams rather than club teams and this has improved the standard. Both Leinster and Munster have proved hugely successful on the European scene and they provide the majority of the National team.

The likes of Tony O'Reilly hung up his shoes to make his name in the business field and Irelands best known rugby entrepreneur.

The Irish Rugby Football Union was formed in 1874 and they played their first international against England at the Oval in London on February 15, 1875. In total Ireland have won 11 Five/Six Nations titles outright and shared eight. They have won nine Triple Crowns.

Top Irish players include Mike Gibson, Willie John McBride, Tony O'Reilly, Keith Woods, Fergus Slattery, Ollie Campbell, Tom Keirnan and recent superstars Brian O'Driscoll and Ronan O'Gara.
