Ireland competed at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States.


Ireland won three gold and one bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics, the highest number ever, and was placed 28th in the medals table. Sonia O'Sullivan, who was seen as the best medal chance prior to the competition, did not win a medal. Two years after the Atlanta Games, FINA banned Smith for four years. Although she was banned for tampering with her urine sample using alcohol, the testers also found traces of a metabolic precursor of testosterone, Androstenedione. However Smith passed all tests at the 1996 Olympics.

Ireland again sent only one archer to the Olympics. Keith Hanlon won his first match, but was defeated in the second round.
