All-Ireland Football Finals 1887-2020

[References: 2]


From 1900 to 1903 and again in 1908, London played the Home Final Champions for the All-Ireland Championship. London lost on each of these occasions, three times to Dublin, and once each to Tipperary and Kerry.

These Finals can be seen as the Precursor to the St. Brendan’s Cup Finals of 1954-1960 and the World Cup Championship of 1967 to 1969 when New York played the National League and All-Ireland Championship, and eventually as precursor to London and New York playing in the All-Ireland Championship (in the Connacht Provincial Championship) and also the GAA World Games, GAA Britain Provincial Championship and International Rules Series between Ireland and Australia.
