Scotland continued to only play the team of the Irish Football Association (IFA) based in Belfast and did not play the FAI until 1961. Both Irish associations styled their teams as Ireland until 1953. To avoid confusion "IRELAND (IFA)" is used in the matches from 4th March 1922 to 3rd October 1953 inclusive. "(Ireland - IFA)" is added after the names of IFA referees who officiated at matches from 26th October 1929 to 4th November 1953 inclusive.

(Match 142) 23rd February 1929 (41st Home International Championship) IRELAND (IFA) - SCOTLAND 3-7 (2-4) Referee: Albert Edward Fogg (England) Crowd: 35.000, Windsor Park, Belfast Goals: 0-1 Gallacher (3), 0-2 Gallacher (5), 0-3 Gallacher (14), 1-3 Bambrick (16), 1-4 Jackson (33), 2-4 Rowley (42), 2-5 Gallacher (51), 3-5 Bambrick (58), 3-6 James (76), 3-7 Jackson (82) IRELAND (IFA): Elisha Scott - Andrew McCluggage, Hugh Flack - Joseph Miller, George Moorhead, Alexander Steele - Robert [James] Chambers, Richard William Morris Rowley, Joseph Bambrick, Lawrie Cumming, John Mahood.

Despite exhaustive research it has proven impossible to say which is correct. The sixth Scotland goal is credited here to Alexander James but the Scottish Football Museum gives it to Hugh Gallacher (his fifth goal in the match). This is supported by some accounts including Gallacher's own. It is not clear whether the SFA officially agrees with this.
