Report

The Hurling-Shinty International Series, first played in 1897, was revived in 1972 for the first time since the Tailteann Games of 1932. The Compromise Rules of the Tailteann Games were used with the first three games goals (3 Points) and Overs (1 Point), Ireland winning all three, having the advantage that their are no overs in Shinty and the Scottish game is largely played on the ground.

The 1975 contest was cancelled and the series came back in 1976 as a goals-only contest with Ireland winning three of the matches, and one ending in a draw after extra-time.

The series was discontinued from 1980-1987.
