The Ireland national hurling team, consisting solely of hurlers, is a representative team for Ireland (both Northern and Republic jurisdictions) in the sport of composite rules shinty–hurling. Few players from the highest level of hurling compete and the team is made up mostly of hurlers from competitions such as the Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cups.
At present the only team it plays is the Scotland national shinty team, on an annual basis. Ireland had a seven-year run of victories until 2004 although the next victory did not come until 2009.
Recently a women's series has been inaugurated to coincide with the men's and become an integral part of the annual series. Ireland won the first series.
