Ireland Ireland[edit]

From 1882–1921 Ireland were an "All Ireland" side. On the partitioning of Ireland in 1922 they continued to play as Ireland (IFA) alongside the newly formed Dublin-based Irish Free State side. Up until 1953 both sides claimed to represent all of Ireland, at which point FIFA ruled that neither side could call themselves "Ireland"; instead, the IFA side were named "Northern Ireland" whilst the FAI side were named "Republic of Ireland". Several players were capped by both international sides following partition, until 1950 when FIFA intervened and ruled that players could no longer do this.

Republic of Ireland Ireland (FAI)[edit]

On the partitioning of Ireland in 1922, the Dublin-based FAI were formed and fielded a separate international side from the already established Belfast run (IFA) Ireland international side. Up until 1953 both sides claimed to represent all of Ireland, at which point FIFA ruled that neither side could call themselves "Ireland"; instead, the FAI side were named "Republic of Ireland" whilst the IFA side were named "Northern Ireland". Several players had been capped by both international sides following partition, until 1950 when FIFA intervened and ruled that players could no longer do this.

Notes[edit]

  • 1 Joe Kennaway had dual nationality
  • 2 Between 1921 and 1950 several players were capped by both the Irish Free State (Dublin based FAI) and Ireland (Belfast based IFA) as both teams claimed they represented the whole of Ireland. In 1950, FIFA intervened and ruled that players were no longer allowed to play for both sides. From 1953, under further instruction from FIFA, the Dublin-run FAI team became known as Republic of Ireland whilst the Belfast-run IFA team became known as Northern Ireland.
