What Is The Irish Hockey Hall Of Fame?
The Irish Hockey Hall Of Fame was instituted in 2006 at Hockey Ireland’s Inaugural Irish Hockey Awards, on 24 th June 2006. It is a unique group of carefully-selected exceptional players from Irish hockey’s illustrious past, whose achievements deserve to be honoured and preserved in the sport’s proud history. Irish hockey has a deep, rich history of success and accomplishment and the Irish Hockey Hall of Fame has been instituted to preserve the greats of the past and present them as role models for Irish players of the future.

Who Is Eligible To Be Selected For The Irish Hockey Hall Of Fame?
Past international players eligible for induction to the Irish Hockey Hall of Fame must have achieved outstanding success and accomplishments in the game while representing Ireland. Those players will also have demonstrated exceptional qualities of play and sportsmanship throughout their playing careers.

To be considered for induction a player must have fully retired from International hockey and be available to collect the award.

Who Decides Who Is Selected Into The Irish Hockey Hall Of Fame?
A specially-selected committee has been established by the Hockey Ireland to research and recommend players for induction into the Irish Hockey Hall Of Fame. The members of this five-member committee have been selected based on the deep knowledge they have of Irish hockey and its past greats, and the high esteem they are held in across Irish hockey.
