Before the 1976 FAI Cup Final at Dalymount, between Bohemians and Drogheda, there was a women's international between Ireland and Scotland.

Does the match programme have any information about the women's game?

I know it ended in a 3-3 draw, but apart from that I would welcome any info on the teams (and even the scorers if there were any reports in the papers).

This is a page from the programme that mentions the game.

There is also pirate for the final that has match detals on the cover but nothing inside on the women's game that I can recall.

You can see some photos and a report here.

Seems like there was quite a bit to report on.

That's terrific, thanks very much Gary. There are so few newspaper reports of women's internationals in the 1970s and 1980s that getting info from the programme is a real bonus.

Gary, l was at this game. As you can see from the photos, Jimmy Hill( in white shirt) was referee and Rod Stewart was the Scotland coach. The Avengers sent a few players. We were expecting Honour Blackman and Emma Peel , but they were filming somewhere. It was an interesting punch-up, but not quite in the Norman Hunter v Franny Lee ‘ Fight of the Century’ class Laughing
