2000 FIRA Women's European Championship
The fifth tournament saw virtually the same format as 1997. In Pool A Ireland returned to the competition.
In "Pool B" a tournament had been planned involving Belgium, Germany, Netherlands and Russia. Belgium and Russia withdrew "at the last minute" and were replaced by a French regional team (Flandre). After a double round-robin between these three teams, Germany and Netherlands played against the teams finishing 7th and 8th in Pool A
