The International Rules Series between Ireland and Australia was revived as a two-game series in 1998, played annually. Ireland won the series in 1998 & 1999, before Australia took the 2000 series. Ireland won their third in four years in 2001, and then Australia won 4 out of five series between 2002 and 2006, with Ireland only winning in 2004.

From then on the series was held every two years.
