Ignacious ("Ignace") Tirkey is a member of India 's hockey team. He plays as a midfielder and has captained the Indian team. [ 1 ]

His younger brother Prabodh Tirkey also represented India in hockey. He is a product of Panposh Sports Hostel, Rourkela where he was spotted by Indian Army to help him pursue his career.

Tirkey made his debut for the national side in February 2001 at the Akbar el Yom Tournament in Cairo against Belgium. He was a member of Indian team that participated in the Athens Olympic in 2004, where India finished seventh.

He is most remembered for his incredible goal which he hit between Pakistan's ace striker Sohail Abbas 's legs in the final minutes of 2003 Asia Cup to give India the winning lead after both teams were locked at 2-2 (India eventually added a 4th goal in the last minute). He looked dangerous in the match & always threatened, but could not finish well till that amazing goal he struck out of nowhere from the edge of the circle. That stunned Sohail & rest of Pakistan & helped India win the Asia Cup Gold for the first time ever.

Another highlight of his was in the Muruguppa Gold Cup in Aug 2001, where he scored a golden goal to win final, and there after in Dec 2002 during the National Games in Hydrabad .
