Ireland's young team could not win promotion back to Europe/Africa Zone Group II, a loss to FYR Macedonia in the pool stages ending their hopes of a spot in the promotion play-offs. The team finished second in Pool B, beating Armenia and Iceland, but lost to Montenegro in their ranking play-off at the end of the week.
Ireland made their Fed Cup debut in 1964 and competed in the World Group on a number of occasions. In more recent times, Ireland have played in the Europe/Africa Zone and last reached Group I in 2003.
