In 2007, the IRFU created the "High Performance Select Group" of up-and-coming Irish players. With the rebuilding of Lansdowne Road, a new venue was required; Croke Park, home of the Gaelic Athletic Association, hosted two 2007 Six Nations games against France and England. Ireland's 2008 Six Nations campaign included three losses. Eddie O'Sullivan resigned as Ireland coach and Declan Kidney was appointed.
Ireland won the 2009 Six Nations Championship and Grand Slam, their first Six Nations win since 1985 and first Grand Slam since 1948. After an Autumn Series victory against South Africa and a draw against Australia, Ireland ended 2009 unbeaten.
