The ICC Cricket World Cup takes place in Australia and New Zealand next month and Ireland's cricketers left today for a training camp in Sydney ahead of the tournament.
Ireland have proved themselves giant killers in past World Cups, with big wins over Pakistan in 2007 and England in 2011.
Ireland are in Group B along with South Africa, India, Pakistan, West Indies, Zimbabwe and United Arab Emirates and face the West Indies in their opening match on February 16.
