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

A "Quaich" is a celtic drinking vessel[1] and has been presented to the winners of the fixture since 1989.[2] Since the introduction of the cup, Ireland have won it fourteen times and Scotland have also won it fourteen times, with one drawn fixture.

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 Scotland after beating Ireland at their last meeting 27-22 at Murrayfield Stadium on 4 February 2017.
