This article features the results of the national football team of the Irish Free State between 1924 and 1935. The team, now the Republic of Ireland national football team, was selected by the Football Association of Ireland.

1924[edit]

The exact status of these four internationals played in 1924 is unclear.[according to whom?][citation needed] The 1924 FAI annual report, regarded them as full internationals, despite featuring entirely amateur teams.[1] In June 1999 both FIFA and the IFFHS also declared that between 1908 and 1956 every game at the Olympic football tournaments was a full international. [2] According to Rsssf, all four opponents that the Irish Free State played also regard these games as full internationals. [3] [4] [5] [6]
