The Ireland Under-19 cricket team represents All-Ireland in Under-19 international cricket.

Ireland recently won the 2009 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup Qualifier which was held in Canada. The team gained victories over the U-19 teams of Hong Kong, Canada, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Vanuatu, the Netherlands and Afghanistan.

The team lost only one match to the United States. Ireland's performance in this tournament gained them qualification for the 2010 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

Ireland was added to the 2016 Under-19 Cricket World Cup on 6 January 2016, after Australian under-19s withdrew due to security concerns.[1] They announced their squad two days later.[2]
