Behind the scenes
"The Irish are another strong defensive team, especially against the run, and with Aiden [sic] Lynch in the air, the offense put as many points on the board as nearly every team in the World Cup. Their running game is suspect, but Lynch always seems to find a way to keep the chains moving. Bulgarians brace yourselves..."
—Description on promotional material for the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.[src]

The Irish National Quidditch team are an international Quidditch team representing Ireland. They won the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, beating Bulgaria in the final.

History

Irish National Quidditch team

Mid-1900s

Darren O'Hare played as Keeper.

1993

In the summer of 1993 the Irish side placed an order in Quality Quidditch Supplies (where a prototype Firebolt was on display) for seven new Firebolt Broomsticks. They were favourites to win the next year's Quidditch World Cup.[1]

1994

They played in the final match of the 1994 Quidditch World Cup against Bulgaria. Troy scored the first goal of the match. After another two Irish goals, Bulgaria registered their opening score. Then Ireland's Seeker Aidan Lynch was fooled by Krum's Wronski Feint, but managed to continue play after the aid of some mediwizards. Fifteen minutes later Ireland had stretched their lead to 130-10, when their Chaser Mullet was fouled by the Bulgarian Keeper and was awarded a penalty. This led to anarchy, with another penalty being awarded to Ireland and referee Hassan Mostafa being distracted by the Veela (Bulgaria's mascots). Quigley sent a Bludger towards Krum which broke his nose. Lynch then spotted the Snitch, but was beaten in the race for it by Krum. Despite this, Ireland still ran out the victors. The final score was 170-160. The Irish team performed a lap of honour before being presented with the Quidditch World Cup in the stadium's Top Box (Lynch had to be supported by Moran and Connolly). Troy and Quigley lifted the trophy. All of the members of the team were riding new Firebolts. The team is probably well-renowned for their superb Chasers, having apparently crushed the Peruvian National Quidditch team in the Semi-Finals before taking on the Bulgarian team.
