The 1921 match against the French at Parc de Princes involved a 'flag incident'. Irish Tricolours were on display by some crowd members & for when the teams came onto the pitch. The team & IFA delegation refused to play until the flags were removed. The incident further derailed the relationship between the newly formed FAI (FAIFS) & the IFA.
