Ireland has qualified for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup on eight occasions, most recently in 2018. This is the most of any European country outside England. Ireland's best result came at the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand, where they finished tenth.

HistoryEdit

Ireland 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.

Among other ICC full members, Ireland has beaten only Afghanistan (once) and Zimbabwe (twice) at the Under-19 World Cup. At the time of their victories over Zimbabwe, Ireland was an associate member.[1]

Ireland was added to the 2016 Under-19 Cricket World Cup on 6 January 2016, after Australian under-19s withdrew due to security concerns.[2] They announced their squad two days later.[3]
