The Brisbane Irish Rugby Football Club originated as the Terrace Old Boys which formed in 1994. In 1996 a meeting of players at Dooley's Irish Pub gave birth to the Brisbane Irish Rugby Football Club who operated out of Gregory Terrace`s Tennyson playing fields until 1999 when the club moved for one season to Kenmore. In 2000 the Brisbane Irish did not compete but instead regrouped and in 2001, thanks largely to Paul Quaglia, Tom Nicol and Brendan Yantsch, the club reformed and operated out of Purtell Park at Bardon in partnership with the West (Brisbane) Junior Rugby League Club. In 2007 the Brisbane Irish relocated to Memorial Park, Enoggera in partnership with the Everton Park Rugby Union Sporting Association where they played for a number of seasons. Following short stints at Gibson Park and Shaw Park, the Irish signed a long-term agreement in 2012, which made Everton Park State High School their current home ground. Through this partnership with the EPSHS, the first phase of the club’s infrastructure project was completed in 2015 which saw the installation of the lighting project at the facility.

The Brisbane Irish have competed in various Queensland Suburban competitions including the Barber, Pegg, Scotney and Normanby Cups. In 2005 the Irish 1st Grade team qualified for the club's first ever Grand Final and were runners up. In 2006 the club qualified both 1st and 2nd grade teams in the finals with the 2nds playing in the Grand Final and were also runners up. In 2007 the club expanded again and fielded three senior teams in the first division Barber and Pegg Cups as well as the Scotney Cup, which it won in 2008. The Irish then went through a period of consolidation but produced a strong season in 2013, despite some key injuries, to reach the semi-final stage of the Barber Cup. The club competed in both the Barber and Pegg Cups in 2014 and is currently competing in the Normanby Cup in 2015.

As well as taking part in these competitions, the Irish also play friendly fixtures against visiting touring teams and take part in the annual ‘State of the Irish’ fixture against their inter-state rivals, the Sydney Irish.
