*Although Ireland was partitioned in 1921, the side representing the Irish F.A. continued to field an all-Ireland team against England, for another twelve years. Even after the team became limited to players from Northern Ireland, it was still referred to as Ireland. For clarity, we have identified these teams as Northern Ireland, whereas the Irish F.A. continued to field all-Ireland full international teams up until 1954.
