Next tie 31 January-2 February 2014
Ireland will compete in Europe/Africa Group II again in 2014 as the nation prepares to launch another bid to go all the way and gain Group I status for the first time since 1991. The team must head to Minsk to face Belarus in a tricky away first round tie.
Last tie 5-7 April 2013
Making its first appearance in three years in the Europe/Africa Group II second round, Ireland made a slow start against Finland as James McGee lost to Harri Heliovaara, ranked over 400 places below him, in five sets. Things soon went from bad to worse and the next two rubbers disappeared in the blink of an eye as Jarkko Nieminen defeated Sam Barry in straight sets before combining with Micke Kontinen to win the decisive doubles.
Ireland's best Davis Cup performance came in 1983, when it reached the World Group play-offs. On that occasion, in Dublin, Ireland lost to USA 3-1.
