Ireland’s national women’s hockey team represents the entire island of Ireland (both Republic and Northern Ireland) in field hockey. It is run by The Irish Hockey Association and currently plays home fixtures at the national hockey Stadium in UCD.  The Association was formed in 2000, as a result of the merger of the two pre-existing Unions which governed men's and women's hockey separately. Both pre-existing Unions' origins date back to the late 19th Century, when they were formed within a year of each other.

The sport's approximate 168 clubs and 280 schools are affiliated to the IHA through its Branch network.
