|FIH World Ranking: 8|
The Irish women's (Green Army) hockey team made a comeback to the Championship divsion in 2015. The team finished fifth in three earlier EuroHockey Championships but have never won a medal. However, as current World silver medalists (London 2018), the expectations of this side have rocketed. They have recently lost their winning coach, Graham Shaw, so it will remain to be seen if they can continue their winning ways.
