Notes[edit]

A. ^ From 1923-1936, the FAI Cup was known as the Free State Cup.

B. ^ Attendances were calculated using gate receipts which limited their accuracy as a large proportion of people, particularly children, attended football matches in Ireland throughout the 20th century for free by a number of means.
