Ireland had not appeared on the World Rugby Sevens Series for a decade by 2015, and started life in Rugby Europe’s third tier.
But within three years they had reached their first World Series tournament semi-final and a year later qualified as a core team.
In the 2020 season, which was curtailed due to COVID-19, Ireland finished 10th having reached two Cup quarter-finals.
Ireland finished third at the first Rugby World Cup Sevens in 1993, and have competed at every edition bar one.
Anthony Eddy’s side won the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series 2018 having competed in Division C just three years earlier.
