Ireland took their first ever share of the British Home Championship (this was prior to goal difference being used to decide places), after earning their first ever victory over the Scots with a 2–0 win in Glasgow and subsequently beating Wales. Just two years previously at the same stadium, Scotland had beaten Ireland 11–0 in what is still their record win.
