The Centenary Quaich (Scottish Gaelic: Cuach an Ceud Bliadhnachan) is an international rugby union award contested annually by Ireland and Scotland as part of the Six Nations Championship.

In total, the two countries have played each other on 128 occasions with Scotland winning on sixty-five occasions, Ireland on fifty-eight, and five draws. However, the cup[1] has only been presented to the winners of the fixture since 1989.[2] Since the introduction of the cup, Scotland have won it thirteen times and Ireland twelve times.

The Quaich is one of a number of similar cups contested for between individual teams as part of their international fixture list. Other examples within the Six Nations Championship include the Calcutta Cup (Scotland vs. England), the Millennium Trophy (England vs. Ireland) and the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy (France vs. Italy).

The current holders are Ireland after beating Scotland at their last meeting 28 - 6 in Dublin on 2 February 2014.
