Ireland v Italy 1927

0
0

Having played 3 matches at the  Olympics, in June 1924 The Irish Free State entertained the USA in Dublin. These matches are frequently omitted from the list of internationals played by the Republic of Ireland.
In March 1926 The Irish Free State were beaten 3-0 by a strong Italian side in Turin.
The programme pictured above is for the 'return' match.
This was not considered a full international by the Italians, and the side was designated as Italy B (or Nazionale Cadetti). It was a decent side however, and all 11 starters would in time become full internationals.
