Statto: First cap for the great Jackie Carey of Manchester United - and start of a 23-match ever-present spell for him.
In a 16-year, war-interupted career, Carey won 29 caps and played in seven different positions for Ireland!
First cap too - and a scoring debut - for the amazing Kevin O'Flanagan: medical doctor; amateur soccer player good enough to play for Arsenal and Ireland; multi-capped Irish rugby international; Irish track-and-field champion; and brilliant golfer and tennis player!
Debut also for Tom Arrigan and Tommy Foy
Both teams wore numbered jerseys for the first time
