Irish International Grand Prix

Template:F1 race

The Irish Grand Prix also known Irish International Grand Prix was an open-wheel racing car motor race which was held three times in a circuit laid out in the grounds of Phoenix Park in Dublin.[1]

The Grand Prix was actually two separate races held under a single banner of the Grand Prix. Saturdays race was the Saorstát Cup, Sundays race the Éireann Cup. The first year was the only year when one driver took both race wins, Boris Ivanowski in an Alfa Romeo. By 1931 the entry of the two races looked markedly different with smaller cars racing in the Saorstát Cup and larger cars racing in the Éireann Cup.
