This is deduction on my behalf but it seems a major representative tie was played in Dublin on St Patricks Day for many years. When the patron saint day fell on a Sunday the game moved onto Monday. Here is a basic listing:

1935 - League of Ireland v Welsh League
1936 - Eire v Switzerland
1937 - League of Ireland v Yugoslav League
1938 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1939 - League of Ireland v Scottish League
1940 to 1950 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1951 - League of Ireland v German League
1952 - League of Ireland v Scottish League
1953 - League of Ireland v Football League
1954 - League of Ireland v Scottish League
1955 to 1958 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1959 - League of Ireland v Football League
1960 - League of Ireland v Hessen League
1961 - League of Ireland v Italian League
1962 - League of Ireland v Italian National League
1963 & 1964 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1965 - ??
1966 - ??
1967 - ??
1968 - ??
1969 - ??
1970 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1971 - ??
1972 - ??
1973 - ??
1974 - League of Ireland v Irish League
1975 - ??
1976 - ??
1977 - League of Ireland v Italian National League
1978 - ??
1979 - ??
1980 - League of Ireland v Scottish League

1986 & 1987 - League of Ireland v Irish League

1997 - Eire B v League of Ireland


Can anyone fill the gaps? Any pre-1934 or post-1980 (except 3 shown)?

I don't have all my records to hand but as you can see for a good period the League of Ireland played interleague matches against the Irish League on St Patrick's Day in Dublin, with a return match in Belfast at Easter.
Pre-1935 the FAI Cup final was played on St Patrick's Day (before moving to April) every year from its establishment in 1921 until 1934. Good luck to you if you're planning to collect those programmes Wink
