The Irish Church may refer to:

Historically, the term Irish Church was used to refer exclusively to the Church of Ireland. This usage dates from pre-disestablishment; it can still be seen in the title of the Irish Anglican missionary organization Irish Church Missions. The fact that a large portion of Irish Anglicans delineated themselves as being members of the Irish Church in the census of both 1901 and 1911 suggests that this term remained in common parlance even after disestablishment.[1]
