Worcestershire CCC's Academy side will take on Ireland Under-19s in two one-day fixtures at Bromsgrove on Monday and Tuesday.
The pair of 50 over matches are amongst the highlights of the season for the County's youngsters.
Ireland will use the games as part of their preparations for the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand.
Last summer the Academy took on an Ireland Under-17s in a week of cricket, winning two 50 overs matches and being beaten in three T20s.
Academy coach Elliot Wilson said: "It is great to have them back. Last year their visit was one of the highlights of the season for the Academy.
"This coming week is one of their weeks of preparation for Under-19 World Cup qualification. They will be good, competitive games.
"We did well against them in the 50 over games last season but later in the week they beat us in a trio of T20 matches."
