To date Team Ireland has 59 athlete spots confirmed for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. For all sports the qualification process froze once the Games were postponed by a year, and all places that were qualified up to that point remained qualified.

New timelines and qualification events have been added for the sports, to qualify the remaining places. Once the spots have been qualified, there is a selection process whereby athletes are named in those spots – this process can run right up to weeks before the Games, depending on the sport.


The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will feature a record 33 competitions and 339 events held across 42 competition venues. The competition schedule was amended to reflect the new dates following the postponement of the Games and may be subject to change.
