Ireland's first modern major competition was in 2001 at the European Championships in Cardiff Wales. Going 0-6, the Irish finished dead last. The following year, they ventured to Perth, Australia for the World Championships. Here they finished 5-0 and wound up in 12th place to win the Green Division for new affiliate countries. In 2005, the Irish won their first trophy at the inaugural Celtic Cup.
